Talk:Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the section titled "Reaction" it states "Republican Party leaders denounced the DACA program as an abuse of executive power". This is misleading and untrue. The citation states "...the president had overstepped his legal bounds to do an end run around Congress." which speaks to the process used by the president when making the policy change and not to the subject matter of the change, in this case, DACA.206.126.59.155 (talk) 20:45, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Hello!

Hi, I am a college student who is interested in editing the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" page here on Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 01:59, 2 March 2018 (UTC) 3 edit I would like to make for the time being are: 1. Ending DACA "would reduce economic growth by $280 billion over the next decade, or about a half-percentage point a year. CAP says GDP would be whittled by $460 billion" and "would culminate in $105 billion in reduced economic output in 2022" (Davidson.) will be added to the Wikipedia section of the DACA article on Wikipedia that talks about the impact of DACA on the economy. 2. adding the source Davidson, Paul. "Analyst Say Ending DACA would Hurt Economy, Hiring." USA Today, 2017, pp. 02 3. adding "ninety-one percent of the 800,000 immigrants [using DACA], or about 730,000, are employed, according to a survey led by the University of California-San Diego, the left-leaning Center for American Progress (CAP) and the National Immigration Law Center" to the Wikipedia section of the DACA article on Wikipedia that talks about the impact of DACA on the economy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 01:54, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for this reference, Neutralityethos146. I have added the information about the rate of employment of DACA recipients. I decided not to add the estimates of the effect on the economy because several such estimates are already included in the article. --MelanieN (talk) 21:04, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Awesome! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 22:56, 22 March 2018 (UTC) More edits I would like to make include... 4.“rescinding DACA will affect workers in the restaurant industry across the nation” because “the restaurant industry relies heavily on immigrant workers” (Dykes.) “[according] to Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, an advocacy organization, nearly 1 in 4 workers in the industry is foreign-born,” and that “based on estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center, ROC suggests that half of these workers may be undocumented” (Dykes.) should be added to the impact section 5. Information from Verdis's testimonial in “DACA’s Cloudy Future Casts A Shadow On A Young Chef’s Dream” should be added to the rescission and legal challenges section. 6. adding the source: Dykes, Allanah. DACA's Cloudy Future Casts A Shadow on A Young Chef's Dream. NPR, Washington, 2018. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 23:56, 23 March 2018 (UTC) I have added 4. and 6. but would like the community's input on whether to add 5. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 00:54, 30 March 2018 (UTC) Decided not to include edit 5. I have just added more edits... 7.Added a Kansas part to the reaction section of the page. 8. Added the sentences: More than 6,800 people are enrolled in DACA. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who helped lead opposition to DACA, said the Obama program was a “cruel illusion.” His opinion is shared by most Kansan politicians. to the Kansas part of the reaction section. 9. Added the source http://www.cjonline.com/news/local/state-government/2017-09-05/kansas-officials-react-trump-administration-s-plan-phase-out — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neutralityethos146 (talkcontribs) 00:23, 20 April 2018 (UTC) 10. Is DACA only a temporary solution? Added to the controversy section.

Unclear on activity

The status is a bit unclear here about the recission of the expansion vs the repeal of all of it, and about the activity on the executive side. Can anyone clarify the status of those two and is the INS currently taking new applicants or not ? Cheers Markbassett (talk) 03:50, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
