Since 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has allowed more than 800,000 immigrants brought here as children to grow in their education, careers and communities. Now the Trump administration has announced an end to this program over the next six months, forcing some of us to live in legal limbo in the only country we know.

Without DACA, My Life Will Be Torn Apart

AnonymousHigh Point NC US

Mr. Donald Trump, I have no hate toward you; I respect you — you are the president after all. I disagree with you in some things though: I AM Mexico's best, not a criminal, murderer, thief, or a rapist. The fate of many lives rest with in your hands and the GOP. I pray and hope every day you do the right thing. I fear that If you deport me, I'll lose everything I worked so hard for. No one will be able to be a role model for my younger brother, and there'd be no one to protect my family. I feel impotent and useless just by thinking about it. I hope my story helps change some points of views.
