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.
