The U.S. House of Representatives voted in March to approve a bill that would create a pathway to citizenship for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. Commonly known as DREAMers, DACA recipients are immigrants who were brought to the U.S. without authorization when they were children. DACA gives DREAMers legal work authorization and protects them from deportation, but it’s temporary.
KHOL Spanish language correspondent Alicia Unger reports on local confusion about DACA’s status as President Joe Biden tries to roll back the hard-line immigration policies of his predecessor. Listen above to hear reporter Will Walkey interview Unger about her work in English and then the full story in Spanish.
