In Nevada, Dreamers face an unknown future

LAS VEGAS, NV — In a statement from the White House, both Democrats and Republicans agreed to a fix on DACA, and resolved to iron the border plan. But a massive hysteria amongst Dreamers in the Silver State is still on.

Just like many DACA recipients, Kyle Reyes came to America from the Philippines with his family at a young age. Thanks to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, he was able to go to school, get a driver’s license and a decent job in finance — earning 50 to 60 thousand dollars

Thanks to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, he was able to go to school, get a driver’s license and a decent job in finance — earning $50-60,000 dollars annually.

But now, he could lose all of what he worked hard for.

“We are very much in fear as the 800,000 DACA recipients, we are pretty much our future is being told by the present President and his administration, by delaying it what the reports says in 6 months before they end the DACA program. It puts all of us in fear that in 6 months, that we lose everything we worked hard for.”

Kyle adds that he is now feeling uncertain and anxious, just like many Dreamers across the country.

“It’s very frustrating because the president is pardoning a sheriff from Arizona that has very much that is a racis,t and he is pretty much about to deport 800,000 people that have nothing but served this country well,” he said.

Kyle says that up to this day he never lost faith in the American dream, and that he is hopeful that Congress will come up with a permanent fix for DACA recipients.

 

In Nevada, DACA has allowed nearly 13,100 young people to come forward pass the background checks, and live and work in the country legally. Many of them are now working in the banking, healthcare and casino industries.

According to interfaithworkerjustice.org, ending the DACA program would cost Nevada more than $603 million in annual GDP losses.

    Everyone should check out the very nice duet by Kenny Rogers and Kim Carnes entitled “Don’t Fall In Love With A Dreamer ” …

    The hard part of every media is that DACA personalities are being portrayed as hard workers or been working so hard to deserved their current status. So they came here when they were young, and now something is wrong with their status? Well, there are so many immigrants in the states who came when they were young but never have problem with their immigration status. They worked hard to deserved their legal status.

    It is kind of shallow, selfish, agenda driven and self righteous for Kyle Reyes to criticized Sherrif Joe Arpaio as a racist? Why? So, if Sheriff Arapaho do hIs job well Arpaio, he’s called a racist?

      that’s why Dreamers are working and you’re here posting and unemployed. Clearly you do not realize that dreamers are millenials, who dominate the work force now and pay taxes. Die off already so we can move on without your ridiculous and stupid comments. Fool!
