"The current DACA system - we should continue the current program until a permanent solution is created." – Francis Fungsang, Esq.

In September 2017, the Trump administration announced that, in six months, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) would end unless Congress passed more comprehensive immigration legislation. Since Congress has failed to do so, the Trump Administration released a framework containing their preferred immigration plan which includes ending chain migration, eliminating the Visa Lottery, and moving the country to a merit-based entry system. This framework is included in one of at least four proposed immigration bills currently in the legislature.

As the March 5, 2018 deadline for DACA looms, members of Congress are actively trying to construct a bill that would be supported by both Democrats in the Senate and the conservative House Freedom Caucus. If immigration reform is not passed, thousands of DACA recipients will lose their protections to stay in the United States and become at risk for deportation.

Join the Youth Forum Council as local leaders discuss immigration reform, the changes that could be made in the United States' policy, and how that will affect immigrants in our community.

Tickets: Free for high school students. $20 members/$35 nonmembers.
