As the March 5th deadline rapidly approaches and Congressional GOP hardliners continue to use DACA as a bargaining chip with which to advance an anti-immigrant white supremacist agenda, nine fearless young DACA recipients narrate their wrenching stories about navigating life under Trump. Among the nine DACA recipients featured are six college students, a medical student, a visual artist, and a young woman with Down syndrome unable to access proper treatment and health care due to her immigration status.
