What Lies Ahead for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program?

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was intended to help undocumented students who, in many cases, were brought to the United States as small children. As such, they have known no other home. The program has been beneficial especially to undocumented college students, who are attending higher education in the United States—and making significant and meaningful contributions to their institutions, peers, and society in general. The students participating in DACA are not the only beneficiaries of the protections it provides. Everyone benefits when these talented and capable students are allowed to continue their studies in the United States.

With the election of President Trump, and especially in light of his recent decision to end the program, the future of the students who are participating in the program is in doubt. As such, many students participating in DACA, along with their families, are concerned.

This session by expert speaker Aaron W. Hughey will provide a clear and concise explanation of all the issues and concerns related to DACA, as well as provide a roadmap for the future of the program and the students it serves. The session will explore the issues and options associated with this often controversial but arguably essential program.

Aaron will provide an up-to-the-minute update on where the students participating in DACA stand, how the program is likely to evolve under the Trump Administration, and what can be done to help protect the students who benefit from this program from the detrimental changes that are likely to occur over the next few years. The session will also discuss the specific strategies to minimize the potential negative impact of restricting (or eliminating) the protections afforded students under DACA.
