Elizabeth Chatham Interviewed for Story on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program
Phoenix immigration attorney Elizabeth Chatham was interviewed by CBS 5's "Good Morning Arizona" show for a segment on President Donald Trump's recent announcement that he will rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Ending the program could affect as many as 800,000 undocumented young adults in the United States who were brought to the country illegally by their parents.
DACA gives the so called "Dreamers" the ability to remain in the country legally, go to school, work and drive without being deported. The president's announcement means the U.S. Congress has six months to pass a law protecting the young people or Dreamers would become eligible for deportation.
Elizabeth spoke about what the President's announcement means, what "Dreamers" can do in the next six months to address their status and what businesses that employ Dreamers can do to protect their workers.
