The Utah Satte University Democrats rally in support of DACA

The clinic helped dozens of people in Taos over the weekend. There will also be 70 scholarships available to help pay for the application fee. "I think it is a Democratic talking point and not what we should be talking about", said Arizona Republican Representative Andy Biggs. "The idea is that we engage them so we can organize in their own town so they can solve their own issues".

DACA provides temporary amnesty for those under 31 years old as of June 2012 and who were in the USA with no legal status before their 16th birthday. According to Molinar, DACA provides recipients with a low deportation status for two years.

That uncertainty turned into discernible fear when President Trump announced in early September that his administration would be phasing out DACA, a program started by the Obama administration in 2012.

Mesa said no new applicants are being accepted, but current DACA recipients whose statuses expire before March 5, 2018, can renew their applications for another two years. And they're competing directly against the DACA recipient aliens.

Mendez said his family never meant to stay as long as they have, "yet here we are". "We have a lot of battles coming up. This is a fight that we all have to fight together".

In Robledo's address, she also said that DACA has helped many people that are part of the Knoxville and Tennessee community and that these recipients have helped the community as well.

Recent attempts to contest the legality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) act may lead to its repeal, but proposed new litigation could still allow similar protection to young illegal immigrants. This will allow the thousands of people to remain focused on either their careers or school.

But immigration officials have said they do not intend to specifically target young immigrants as priorities for deportation.

U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have asked Congress to support the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors, or DREAM, Act to protect DACA enrollees from deportation.

"We were told so many times that DACA was not possible, and now that it's terminated, we're going for more", said Hernandez.

DACA recipients live illegal lives out in the open without any repercussions. And I promise you, if anyone tries to take you out of your homeland, the United States of America, I will stand in front of those people, and they will have to take me, too. Receiving deferred action during her senior year of college, Hernandez used her status to complete her education and is looking at pursuing a master's degree in the future.

October 5, is the deadline for young undocumented immigrants with DACA status to apply to renew their permits. There is fairly strong backing for offering an amnesty to existing immigrants: the Gallup poll found that up to 84% of people support introducing a path to citizenship for those who meet certain conditions.

The money provided to University Democrats will be given to the Equal Justice Center, a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization that assists low-income families, workers, and communities. "Our community had been under attack all of this administration". All because of a choice they had no say in, because their parents sacrificed everything so their children can have a future.
