“Fate of program to protect young immigrants still undecided”
by Alicia Caldwell
As of June 16, the Trump administration remains undecided on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program. Proposed by the Obama administration, DAPA seeks to protect and assist the immigrant parents of US citizens. However, the program has yet to be passed. In response to growing concerns around how this will affect DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has assured that DACA “has not changed” and will remain enforced.
