While the nation’s focus is rightfully on the COVID-19 crisis, another crisis is looming for a large group of young people. Dreamers are living a nightmare as they wait for the federal government to act on their status.
There is no national consensus on immigration, with passionate viewpoints on both sides. But most Americans sympathize with the plight of Dreamers, who were brought into this country as young children. No matter where you stand politically, most of us agree that Dreamers are standing on shaky ground as the US Supreme Court decides if they can stay in the only country they have ever known.
As an immigration lawyer, I have represented thousands committed to the pursuit of the American Dream. Many of them are Dreamers with DACA status, which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
