Caballero calls DACA a "promise made and one that should not be broken"

Politicians representing San Benito County voters spoke out Sept. 5 against new information put out by the Trump administration related to undocumented children who have immigrated with their families to America. Assemblywoman Anna Caballero stated in a news release, “I am saddened by the news that the Trump administration will end DACA.” Caballero was referring to Reform of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Dreamers are younger undocumented immigrants who typically came in to the country with their parents.

According to reports in the Washington Post, Trump is “unwinding” the program that has allowed undocumented children, some of whom have grown to be young adults, to live in the country with less fear of being deported.
