Travel restrictions in the U.S (DACA) are dividing families

Print page

There are over 690,000 immigrants protected by DACA, and that number is rapidly plummeting due to trump’s new immigration policies. Many families are being separated from one another and destroying their hopes and dreams for coming in the U.S. The purpose of DACA was to let undocumented immigrants (dreamers) brought in this country in their youth. Of course, many people are outraged by this action from trump and recently, the state of Hawaii sues trump about the travel ban. People also complained for the young immigrants who have been in the U.S for years yet they were sent back to their home country.

Immigrants have the right to stay in the U.S including the undocumented ones. DACA was created and its main purpose is for the people who immigrated to the U.S and escape poverty in their country so that they are able to have a new life for their children. When it comes to race diversity, I think America would come in first place. In addition, some countries have controlled population in which there aren’t many different nationalities. A good example of this are some countries in Asia like Japan, Korea. The population there are mostly composed of Japanese or Korean people; immigration is not so common there and since you’re from a different country/race, people who are native in that country tend to look at them in a way that makes the immigrant feel unwelcome.

What are your thoughts about DACA for the people who migrated here in the U.S, and what do you think are the advantages and disadvantages about the restriction of the immigration policies?
