Hope in Uncertainty
Miranda, Maria Eugenia
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v29 n22 p10-11 Dec 2012
When President Barack Obama announced that he would direct the Department of Homeland Security to grant deferred deportation and a work permit for two years to undocumented immigrant youth who meet certain criteria, he renewed hope for a better future for a million young people. Lauren Burke, an adjunct law professor at Brooklyn College of Law and a counselor at the community organization, Atlas: DIY, says it's not surprising that there has been so much miscommunication about the president's deferred action program. To remedy this, Atlas: DIY has started a series of YouTube videos for young people who don't have access to legal help and a Tumblr account to provide support for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act youth and is organizing a deferred action reunion this fall to connect those who have been approved with prospective applicants. With Obama back in office, students and activists are much more confident that deferred action status won't be swiped away and a more permanent solution will come.
