    Thank you for tagging me in this @Danica ! As a daughter of an immigrant from Russia, I believe that DACA is very important. Even though I am not directly affected, I have friends who are. In my opinion I don't think President Trumps intention is to get rid of DACA but instead make changes to it, since this was created by an executive order it would be the right thing to do to have congress create a new plan that both sides will hopefully agree on. Unfortunately President Trump is not giving this situation enough time to be sorted out. My educated guess is that DACA will remain but there will be changes in the pathway of citizenship, like instead of DACA providing a work visa it would help you actually become a citizen. I do not think that people under DACA will be deported, and I hope this issue will get resolved as soon as possible. Because hundreds of thousands of people are anxiously waiting for a response from our government.

      I think that DACA should remain after the 6 months, and until a bill is passed to permanently allow for a path to citizenship. To strip human beings from these privileges is inhumane, and to tell them that they should self-deport if they aren't able to renew is ridiculous. Unfortunately, the passing of a Dream Act is used as a pawn in congress. For example, it has been rumored that Trump is willing to work for a Dream Act if he gets things in return such as his wall, increase in the budget for mass deportation raids, etc. Dreamers are not pawns and will keep fighting even if they do get a Dream Act. The reality is that many have undocumented loved ones who don't qualify for DACA, thus they are left in the shadows. Dreamer families shouldn't be told they should be satisfied with the idea of the Dream Act. A CLEAN NO STRINGS ATTACHED Dream act is needed and should not put at risk the rest of the undocumented population who isn't eligible for DACA. All 11 million undocumented people in this country should get a chance at naturalization.

    I think that DACA will (and should) remain after the six months. Six months is an unrealistic time frame. I think the economic impact would be too severe for even Trump to ignore, but I do agree that revision of the act should be made to open a path to citizenship for dreamers. I stand with the dreamers and believe that continuing to raise our voice without fear will bring the right results.
