American Dream or Nightmare?

Idea

Will there be more deaths and increased devastation as a result of a government that has failed some of US?

There was a time when this great nation welcomed all foreigners seeking a better life. But unfortunately, the lack of progress we have seen so far and most recently the DACA termination doesn't appear to be isolated acts. Is it an anti-immigrant camp pain undermining The United States of America's highest ideals of equality?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals effects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children are now in the program that protects them from deportation and lets them temporarily stay in the US to serve in the military, work or study. Obama put it in place bypassing Congress with an executive order. https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Resources/Reports%20and%...

It disproportionately impacts Hispanics, which make up the overwhelming majority of DACA recipients who came from Latin America. This is just one of the ways that Latinos in our country face discrimination, in addition to lacking equal access to health, education, and other crucial services.

The fundamental question is has the American Dream been deferred, or is it turning into a nightmare? The children of undocumented immigrants are “unlawfully present” here in America, according to the Trump administration which has rescinded the Obama-era program that gave a measure of amnesty to hundreds of thousands of people.
