Allowing people who already have DACA to continue living and working in the U.S. for three additional years:
1) would allow DACA recipients to continue contributing to our society and economy. Taxpayers have invested in educating DACA recipients, and the country should benefit from the investment by keeping their talent in the workforce.
2) would provide assurance to DACA recipients that they could continue being both authorized to work in the U.S. and protected from deportation. These are individuals who have spent most of their lives in the U.S. Many do not remember any other home. They did not make the choice to enter the country illegally, and they shouldn't be punished for their parents' actions.
Law abiding families should remain together and contribute to our nation!
