The Road to Deferred Action: Tracing the Story of the DREAM Act
The Deferred Action program, which starts on August 15, is a milestone for DREAMers. Introduced by the Obama administration in June, the program is aimed at young undocumented immigrants who would be given a path to citizenship under the DREAM Act, a proposal that has repeatedly failed to win congressional approval. Under deferred action, young people can apply to remain in the U.S. legally, but they can’t become citizens.
Since 2009, Feet in 2 Worlds has closely followed the DREAM Act and the people it is intended to help and here have put together a photo gallery of their coverage which tells the story of this latest chapter in the immigrant rights movement.
