Thousands of people in and around Chicago are signed up for Deferred Action for  Childhood Arrival, or DACA.  But with President Trump’s insistence that he can’t support the program’s continuation without a number of concessions, the program has become a nightmare of bureaucracy and uncertainty for its participants.

On this show, we talk with three experts who’ve devoted their professional lives to helping DACA recipients navigate the program’s pitfalls.

Our guests are:

Laura Mendoza, the Resurrection Project    (312) 666 3062 and on Facebook at The Resurrection project 


Ruth Lopez-McCarthy, the National Immigrant Justice Center     (312) 660-1370


Fred Tsao, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights    (312) 332 7360
