        The Lowdown | How We Got Here: The Rise and Demise of DACA Lesson Plan

        Earlier this month, President Trump ended the DACA program, rolling back an Obama-era executive action created for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, protects recipients from deportation and gives them the right to work legally. Critics call the Trump administration’s actions unwarranted and cruel, given that most DACA recipients have only ever lived in the United States and had no choice about coming here illegally. Proponents of Trump’s decision claim Obama’s executive action was illegal. In this Lowdown lesson, students will analyze the history of recent immigration reform efforts, especially as they relate to undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.
