Amid border crisis debate, many new immigrants land in D.C. area

By Richard Simon

Virginia is more than 1,500 miles from the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas, epicenter of the border crisis.

And it is the home state of Rep. Eric Cantor, who was defeated by a tea party novice who attacked the former House majority leader for being open to “amnesty” for at least some immigrants in the country illegally.

But Yesenia, 16, and her brother, Herson, 12, are here.

Junior, 14, is in Virginia too. So is Claudia, 13.

Possible DACA Expansion Alert/ Alerta sobre Posible Expansion de DACA

Este mensaje se repite en español

Have you heard about the possible expansion of DACA that would cover your family members? If you have not, then continue reading!

 

President Obama recently announced that unless Congress does something to fix our current broken immigration system, he will move forward and use his executive powers to alleviate the situation. One of the possible actions he could take, is expanding the DACA program to cover anywhere between 3 – 5 million undocumented people. Those who may be eligible to apply for this program would be:

  • The undocumented parents and legal guardians of US citizens
  • The undocumented parents and legal guardians of DACA permit holders

The people who would benefit from this possible expansion would need to prepare similar documents to what DREAMers had to prepare when they first applied for DACA.
