The Limitations of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA): The Reality on the Ground

Santiago Martinez, Pedro (University of Kentucky) and Steve Pavey, Ph.D. (One Horizon Institute)

This poster explores the lived experience of undocumented immigrants in relation to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy announced on June 15, 2012. The research that informs this poster examines the following questions:  What are the diverse perspectives from the undocumented community of the meaning and impact of this policy?  What have the experiences been for DACA-eligible youth of the application process?  What are the opinions of the undocumented community of the potential impacts for change in their quality of life because of the DACA policy?  This research utilizes semi-structured interviews, participant observation, news articles and social media.
