Summary
In 2012, President Obama deferred the deportation of qualified undocumented youth with his policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals forever changing the lives of the approximately five million DREAMers currently in the US. Formerly 2illegal,3 a generation of Latino youth have begun to build new lives based on their newfound 2legitimacy.3 In this book, the first to examine the lives of DREAMers in the wake of Obama{u2019}s deferred action policy, the authors relay the real-life stories of more than 100 DREAMers from four states. They assess the life circumstances in which undocumented Latino youth find themselves, the racializing effects generated by current immigration public discourse, and the permanent impact of this policy environment on DREAMers in America. --Provided by publisher
