TRUMP’S LACK OF COURAGE SHOWS NO LEADERSHIP LEAVING THE FATE OF DACA IN THE HANDS OF A DYSFUNCTIONAL CONGRESS
DACA is a Program that allows young immigrants who came to the United States with their parents illegally to stay in the Country under the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act without fear of deportation. Now DACA stands a chance of being discontinued by Trump wanting to end by phasing out this program over the next six (6) months.
Under DACA, there are approximately 800,000 immigrants who have received work authorizations, including many hospitality workers and their families. This could result in hospitality industry workers from working lawfully thus forcing them to work illegally.
Congress is now forced to make a decision of the livelihoods of these immigrants, who contribute to the American economy, live productive and meaningful lives, and attain education and employment, lose their most basic rights to live in a country they were brought to as children. The Bartenders Union as well as UNITE HERE and its Affiliates condemn terminating DACA. We will lobby our congressional members as well as actively take to the streets across the country with our workers in every state in the nation to advocate to Congress to save DACA.
