No Deal Set as Deadline for DACA Agreement Approaches
SAN JUAN – The deadline is quickly approaching for an agreement to be drawn up that affects Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients in the Rio Grande Valley.
Pres. Trump set the deadline for March 5 after rescinding the program.
A federal court ruling made way for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to resume taking applications for renewal of the status.
For now, recipients are hoping for a more permanent solution.
“It’s very frustrating, especially me, as a DACA recipient, knowing that the deadline is approaching closer and closer. It's tense,” said Abraham Diaz, education specialist at LUPE. "But, I know that all the work that we're doing is getting us to that end goal.".
Diaz says they are optimistic that a compromise will be reached.
