Daniela Garza Professor Lee February 20, 2017 WRD 104 Topic In this research essay I will be exploring Trump’s views on immigration policy, specifically regarding DACA and its recipients. I will be exploring what exactly DACA is and also how it impacts educational expectations of undocumented students. AS a point of comparison, previously established executive orders and immigration policies will be reviewed. The main one will be the executive order on immigration that President Barrack Obama delivered in 2014. Trump’s dislike toward immigrants and immigration is something that will impact millions of not only undocumented students, but also workers and their families. There will be more jobs lost if he is serious about deporting everyone he can, than jobs created. This will be detrimental to the United States’ economy and a large factor in this will be the DACA students who may no longer be able to study in the States. Without DACA, students do not feel like they have any chance of graduating a 4-year college or university or even getting to one. This means less jobs as well. But now Trump seems to be changing his mind on immigration policies, at least in respect to DACA. I will explore just how this will affect the undocumented community and what it means for them. Annotated bibliography Burke, L. A. (2014). DACA-lamented spared deportation, immigrant students still face higher ed barriers. New England Journal Of Higher Education , 1. (Online).
The article emphasizes the barriers that are present to DACA students when applying to an institution of higher learning, specifically private liberal arts colleges and universities. The author, an immigration lawyer, presents a situation a client of hers faces where they won’t even be considered to visit the school because they are undocumented. They are being treated as foreign students because of the outdated policy, and lack of a policy that deals with DACA applicants. I will use this source to demonstrate how even with the DACA designation, it is still difficult for students to further their education. I want to bring to light how much more difficult it will be if Trump does decide to repeal DACA.
