To date, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth have been granted DACA status, which provides work authorization and temporary relief from deportation. The program has enabled our graduates to contribute to their communities by significantly increasing opportunities for higher education and jobs. Unfortunately, on Sept. 5, 2017, President Trump directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out and eventually end DACA over two and half years.

迄今,接近80萬名無證移民青少年已獲賦予DACA身份,並從中獲工作許可和暫緩遣返。該計劃大大增加我們畢業生入讀大專院校及就業機會,從而有助他們貢獻社區。很不幸,在2017年9月5日,特朗普總統指令美國國土安全部(DHS) 及美國公民及移民服務局(USCIS) ,在未來兩年半內逐步撤銷「童年入境者暫緩遣返手續」(DACA),直至該計劃完全撤銷為止

Hasta la fecha, casi 800.000 jóvenes inmigrantes sin documentos legales de inmigración han obtenido la categoría DACA, lo que les proporciona una autorización de trabajo y pospone temporalmente su deportación. El programa ha permitido que nuestros graduados contribuyan a sus comunidades al aumentar significativamente las oportunidades para que ellos obtengan una educación superior y empleo. Infortunadamente, el día 5 de septiembre de 2017, el presidente Trump ordenó al Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) y a los Servicios de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de los EE.UU. (USCIS) que gradualmente eliminen y eventualmente pongan fin a la Acción Diferida para Llegadas de Niñez (DACA) durante un lapso de dos años y medio.​
