The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – also called DACA – was instituted in 2012.
Under the program, those who immigrated to the United States illegally as children could apply to work legally in the country. Hundreds of thousands did so nationally over the next few years, many of them in the South King County area. National polling shows that the program was broadly popular.
On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump administration would phase out DACA.
We’d like to know what our Readers think about this – with the percentage of foreign-born Burien residents around 20%, should the program be preserved and continued in communities of South King County?
