Fully Reinstate DACA and Provide a Permanent Solution for Dreamers
In 2012, the LGBTQ community celebrated the Obama Administration’s announcement of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”). For thousands of LGBTQ youth, the opportunity provided by DACA was life-changing and life-saving. However, the Trump Administration’s subsequent attempts to dismantle DACA have put vulnerable LGBTQ immigrants in danger.
The Biden administration should immediately reinstate DACA and ensure the passage of legislation securing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented young people.
