Master’s student Anayeli Marcos was one of four Dreamers interviewed by USA Today last November, when the U.S. Supreme Court took up the Trump administration’s plan to end DACA. This program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA) was established during the Obama administration. It has provided a reprieve for some undocumented immigrants who, like Marcos, were brought to the United States as children.
“It feels, in a way, very surreal,” Marcos said. “Sometimes it’s a bit overwhelming, feeling that your fate is in the hands of people who don’t know you.”
