Deferred Action Client Spotlight

In 2012 a temporary program for young immigrants called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was initiated. Since then nearly 700,000 immigrant youth have applied for DACA, and while many still await their decisions, roughly 97% of the applications have been approved. More than 600,000 have since been able to receive temporary legal status in the United States which offers a reprieve from deportations through this renewable program.

DACA has had an immense impact on the lives of these young people. A recent survey of 1,400 DACA-approved persons conducted by United We Dream shows that DACA is an immigration success story, having improved not only their social and economic conditions, but also their sense of belonging to the only country they can call “home.”

Colorado has the 10th highest participation rate, with the majority of the applicants hailing from the Denver Metro Area. Since the program began, we have seen many of our initial applicants returning through our doors seeking assistance with the filing of their renewals and in speaking with each individual applicant, it has become clear that DACA really has created positive change in many of their lives.

We have been so impressed with so many of our clients that we wanted to share their stories. Each month we will be spotlighting two of our clients who are shining examples of the intended purposes of this program and we encourage you to check back regularly.

Daniela first came to us in 2013 seeking to apply for DACA, and again just this year to renew her status. In the time since we first met Ms. Cabrera, she has continued to excel both in her home high school as well as the technical high school she concurrently attends. Daniela is set to graduate in 2016 and hopes to attend Colorado Mesa University in order to study Psychology and Criminal Justice. Recently, Daniela was part of a team that placed first in the state of Colorado in the Criminal Justice chapter of a competition put on by Health Students of America and was invited to attend the National Conference in June of 2015.

Outside of school Daniela works 20-hours a week, volunteers in Key Club and for her church, and plays soccer when she finds the time. She also enjoys drawing, reading and trying new restaurants.

Daniela is grateful for the DACA program and sees it as a “light in [her] life,” and that it was given her a sense of empowerment and motivation to accomplish her dreams without hesitation.

We wish Daniela all the best as she looks towards not only her high school graduation but to the bright future that lies on her horizon!

image2Alejandra Perez

Alejandra first came to Catholic Charities in 2013 and again just this year as she sought to renew the temporary status and work permit she received through the DACA program. Having graduated from Manual High School in December of 2014, she is currently working with her counselors there on a post-grad plan while she looks towards tackling her next challenge. When asked what her plans were beyond her graduation, Ms. Perez straight-away responded that she would be furthering her education and is hoping to apply to a massage/therapy program in Colorado.

It is because of these aspirations that Alejandra is choosing to renew her Deferred Action status as it provides her with a way to work in order for her to save-up for her education, and, in doing so, achieve her goals for her future. As a high school grad with a little more free-time on her hands, Alejandra is spending it taking care of children and hanging out with her little brother

Alejandra says that she is grateful for the DACA program and considers it to be “the best thing that’s ever happened to [her].” Not only has DACA given her the opportunity to gain work and real life experiences such as time and money management, it has also given her a sense of belonging and hope for her future. 

We wish Alejandra the best of luck in all of her future endeavors
