Lunch & Listen: On the future of DACA and the need for an immigration policy based on human rights not exclusion (video)

The Trump administration recently announced it was ending the DACA protections provided by the Obama administration for young, undocumented immigrants brought here by their parents.

President Trump wants Congress to come-up with a new version of the program or let it expire. The New York Times reports the first attempt to protect these immigrants from deportation has already stumbled in Congress.

This weekend on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon we talk about the administration’s decision and what it means for the Dreamers and their families with Angeline Echeverría, Executive Director of El Pueblo.

Click below for a preview of this weekend’s radio interview. The full interview with Echeverría will appear on Policy Watch’s main site on Monday.
