In early 2017, Solidarity Strategies released a short documentary on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative and the people affected by it. DACA is an Obama-era immigration policy made official in 2012 that affords the minor children of undocumented immigrants the opportunity to stay in America for a two-year deferred action period that could be renewed. During that time, the minors would not face the threat of deportation or legal action related to their immigrant status.
The program, Pursuing the Dream, subtitled “A DACAmentary,” features interviews of children of undocumented workers explaining how DACA has helped them succeed in their adoptive country. The DACAmentary also goes into detail on the directive and those that came after, such as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). Lastly, Pursuing the Dream examines and questions how President Trump will handle these initiatives and the ramifications a repeal would have on those affected by DACA and DAPA.
