Migration Policy Institute Report Breaks Down DACA Population

The future of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, is very much in doubt in its fifth year.

Despite support from both sides of the aisle for the young people eligible for DACA, President Trump is expected to terminate it sometime this week.

Earlier this month, the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute released a report called The Education and Work Profiles of the DACA Population to provide more details on who DACA-eligible people are, including levels of education and which jobs they have.

To learn more, we spoke with Julia Gelatt. She is a senior policy analyst for the Migration Policy Institute.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
