DACA, or deferred action for childhood arrivals, is a program established by Obama in 2012 to help the children who arrived illegally, or rather whose parents decided to come illegally into the country and brought them, to be eligible for 2 year renewable work permits. This september, Trump rescinded this act, marking a new age of inhumanitarianism in the United States.
This bill had helped families both economically and psychologically, reducing the rate of poverty in households affected. Felons are not eligible, so it is arguable that this bill also decreased the amount of felons who knew they would be denied coverage should they commit a crime.
Congress has delayed trumps act 6 months to figure out what to do with those previously covered. All in all, this was a good bill that helped a good number of families and I am sad to see what this country is coming to. Is this teaching certificate good in Canada?
