What is DACA and Why Does it Matter? A Podcast


A very informative podcast from NPR. Excerpt:

After the Trump Administration announced its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, we decided to put together a special podcast-only episode to help you make sense of the news. We break down some of the factually questionable statements in Attorney General Sessions’ announcement, hear from an expert on how DACA affects the economy and find out about one DACA recipient’s daring sacrifice during Hurricane Harvey. Plus, we open the phone lines and hear from you, our listeners, about what your DACA means to you.
