Statement from the School Social Work Association of America:

Rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program

On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration announced the decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This decision will impact more than 800,000 adolescents and young adults in our schools and communities across the U.S. DACA provides approximately 800,000 young immigrants across the United States with temporary, renewable authorization to live, study, and work in the United States, and is set to expire by presidential order on March 5, 2018.
