The APM Reports documentary “Shadow Class: College Dreamers in Trump's America” looks at the rescinding of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a policy that allows some individuals with unlawful presence in the United States after being brought to the country as children to receive a deferred action from deportation and become eligible for an employment in the U.S.
APM Reports began interviewing college students with DACA before the presidential election, and then followed them through spring semester, talking with them periodically as the Trump administration gave mixed signals about Dreamers. A history of how DACA came to be is also highlighted.
This audio is second of two-part report.
