What Will Happen to DREAMers and the Lives They’ve Built?

Lornet Turnbull

Christian Moreno’s job as a residential assistant at California Lutheran University allows him to cover the $8,700 gap in expenses that his financial aid doesn’t cover. The sophomore business and Spanish major is financially independent of his parents, and also works as a private tutor and as a receptionist on campus to support himself. He held six jobs this past summer so he could save money for emergencies, “like the one that happened today.”

Just as we witnessed with their ACA meddling the GOP does not need to take any formal action to permanently hobble previous legislation. As long as they control Congress and the White House their meddling enables them to shape the direction of the US and much of the world. By keeping DACA folks on edge they are unlikely to ever be able to return to a life that includes any ability to plan their futures.
