Time is running out for recipients of The Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals Program and California officials are doing something about it.
On Tuesday, governer Jerry Brown, along with other legislative leaders announced that they plan to help DACA recipients by donating $30 million. According to Los Angeles Times, money will be allocated where they see fit –his includes distribution to legal services, community colleges, California State University and the University of California. The government officials of California have spoken out on many occasions regarding Trump's decision to rescind DACA, most of which were to condemn his decision. While the plan that affects 800,000 young lives is still falling into place, they are working dilligently to help the innocent youth before it's too late.
California is home to many 'Dreamers'. In fact, according to Brietbart a little over 25% of DACA recipients reside in the western state so it is no surprise that they are the source of much presidential criticism within the last few weeks. While the decision has left few youth with some alternative, there is no way to know what will happen in the next few weeks. Many Americans, including the leaders of California, are hopefull and adament for a better outcome for our immigrant youth.
