SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (11/13/17) - Beyond the dream.
Delta College hosted a community discussion Monday night on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
It's the immigration legislation often referred to as DACA for short.
The event was held at the Saginaw Ricker Center in Buena Vista Township.
The talks included three different avenues for approaching immigration reform including: keep DACA in place as is, repeal DACA and prioritize deportation and border security or replace DACA with the "Dream Act".
That third option would provide a path to permanent residency for people brought into the country illegally as children.
The goal of the forum was to create a better understanding of the options and their consequences.
