New Data Highlight DACA Recipients’ Contributions to Families and Communities

9/5/19 marks two years since the Trump administration announced the end of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), creating chaos and confusion and upending the lives of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants and their families.
On November 12, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether the Trump administration’s termination of the DACA program was lawful.
The Center for American Progress is releasing a new data analysis that demonstrates the ways in which the 661,000 active DACA recipients remain key contributors to families and communities across the nation.
