Save DACA!

IN ABOUT TWO MONTHS PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP WITH THE STROKE OF HIS PEN CAN SAY "YOU'RE FIRED" TO NEARLY 750,000 INDIVIDUALS. IF HE REMOVES DACA HE WOULD STRIP HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DACA DREAMERS OF THEIR EMPLOYMENT WORK AUTHORIZATION LEAVING THEM, EMPLOYERS, AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH SHATTERED DREAMS. WE NEED TO RAISE OUR VOICES AND PRAY THAT WHEN THE TIME COMES A RIGHT DECISION WILL BE MADE.
SINCE 2012, DACA HAS BLESSED THE LIVES OF DREAMERS AND HAS ALSO STRENGTHENED OUR ECONOMY. ACCORDING TO A RECENT STUDY BY THE CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS DACA WOULD BRING AT LEAST $433.4 BILLION TO THE U.S. GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS. YOU WILL FIND DREAMERS GOING TO COLLEGE, GAINFULLY EMPLOYED, PAYING TAXES AND PROVIDING FOR THEIR FAMILIES. ALSO, DREAMERS ARE LAW ABIDING, OTHERWISE, THEY COULD JEOPARDIZE THEIR STATUS. FOR EXAMPLE, ONE DWI/DUI WOULD CAUSE THEM TO LOSE DACA.
I PERSONALLY HAVE SEEN THE BENEFIT OF DACA TO THIS COUNTRY AND HAVE MET THOUSANDS OF DREAMERS WHO OWE MUCH TO DACA. MANY ARE NOW IVY LEAGUE STUDENTS, COLLEGE ATHLETES, NURSES, PARALEGALS, ENGINEERS, EDUCATED HOMEMAKERS, AND REAL APPRENTICES IN IMPORTANT INDUSTRIES. DACA HAS NOW GIVEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS HOPE THAT GRADUATION IS NOT THE END. I HAVE ALSO SPOKEN TO MANY BUSINESS OWNERS WHO RELY ON AND CONTRIBUTE MUCH OF THEIR SUCCESS TO THE DREAMERS THEY HIRE.
PERHAPS TRUMP WILL NOT REMOVE DACA FROM THOSE WHO ALREADY HAVE IT, BUT SIMPLY STOP IT AT SOME FUTURE DATE? SENATOR MARK RUBIO RECENTLY ENCOURAGED THE PRESIDENT-ELECT TO NOT RETROACTIVELY REMOVE DACA. I BELIEVE THIS WOULD BE A GOOD BUSINESS DECISION AND A HUMANE POLITICAL COMPROMISE THAT COULD SAVE DACA.
