DACA Solidarity Rally

Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program that was enacted by former President Obama in the summer of 2012. Since the program’s beginning, approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants who had been brought to this country as young children and had been raised here without knowing any other way of life, have been able to step out of the shadows and become contributing members of our society, boosting out country’s educational and economical outcomes. However, the Trump administration has posed a serious threat on this program’s existence. We are asking that DACA recipients and allies come out and join us on UAB’s campus to demand protection for Undocumented Youth and our families.

Deffered Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) es un programa que fue pasado en el verano del 2012 por el Ex-Presidente Obama. Desde el inicio del programa, aproximadamente 800,000 inmigrantes indocumentados que habian sido traidos a este pais desde temprana edad y que fueron criados aqui sin conocer otro tipo de vida, han podido salir de las sombras y convertirse en miembros contribuyentes de nuestra sociedad, ayudando a aumentar los resultados educacionales y economicos de nuestro pais. Sin embargo, la administracion de Trump a planteado una seria amenaza a la existencia de el programa. Estamos pidiendo que beneficiarios de DACA y aliados se unan a nosotros en el campus de UAB para exigir la proteccion de la juventud indocumentada y nuestras familias.
