DACA: A Dying Dream
International House Philadelphia hosts a dialog with experts.
On September 5, President Trump announced he would let protections for 'Dreamers' under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) expire and called on congress to find a legislative solution for the fate of around 800,000 registered recipients who have been living in the US since they were children and are now working or attending college or university. A popular move in some circles and an unpopular one in many others, the decision has enormous legal, economic, political, and diplomatic implications.
International House Philadelphia brings together an interdisciplinary panel discussion on the history of DACA, its arc from inception in 2012 until now, and analysis of and predictions for its future and the destiny of the 1.1 million people eligible for the benefits of the program.
Join the discussion with:
Alicia Kerber, Head of the Mexican Consulate of Philadelphia
Sarah Paoletti, Director, Transnational Legal Clinic at Penn Law and
Practice Professor of Law
Adam Solow, Attorney with the immigration and nationality law firm
Solow, Isbell & Palladino
Anel Medina, DACA recipient
5:30-7:00-panel discussion followed by Q & A
