DACA with its 800,000 green card holders are anxiously waiting about possible deportations. They have been successful, basically, in working at a career and paying taxes. They should be humanely vetted as well as have opportunities in working toward full US citizenship. It would seem cruel to send DACA members back to a nation original origin of their parents. These DACA individuals have never lived/worked in another nation than that of the United States. Being deported to a nation of which they know nothing about would be extremely unusual and negative.

On the Statue of Liberty when entering New York Harbor, words of wisdom state, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free…"

We need to welcome the DACAs as ultimate citizens, just as our foreparts as they came to the shores of the United States years ago. Each person in the United States must contribute abilities and skills more optimally.
