DACA deportations

News

SAN JUAN, Texas – Young dreamers in the Rio Grande Valley are worried about what their immigration status will look like in 2020.

The Trump Administration and Immigration Customs Enforcement are requesting immigration courts to re-open deportation cases.

Thousands of young undocumented immigrants, protected by DACA, could be affected.

La Union Del Pueblo Entero is a non-profit organization helping immigrant families in the Rio Grande Valley.

This news came as a shock to many who felt 2020 might lead to a path to citizenship for dreamers.

“It’s a shame, I feel like this administration doesn’t sleep just trying to figure out how he’s going to harm the immigrant community and this is one more way that he’s trying to harm these people who have been here for such a long time. They are American’s by heart,” said Martha Sanchez a L.U.P.E Community Organizing Coordinator.

There are more than 700,000 people under the DACA program. Dreamers are currently waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court to make a decision regarding their future status.

The Trump Administration says it’s a matter of following the law and look forward to a decision from the high court.
