Maria Blanco, executive director of the Immigrant Legal Services Center at the University of California, is a leading expert on U.S. immigration trends and policies, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
During her visit as a speaker during Roosevelt’s American Dream Reconsidered Conference, Blanco took time out to discuss DACA and other immigration issues with members of the University’s OASIS (Outreach, Advocacy, Social Justice, Information and Safety) Committee.
Fear and uncertainty have gripped DACA students and their families, according to Blanco, who spoke during a half-hour audio-cast with OASIS Committee member and graduate sociology student Paige Jovanovic.
Addressing everything from history and future of U.S. immigration policy to the impact that DACA holders will face if DACA is terminated, the audio cast can be heard by clicking on the link below.
