It’s come to my attention that DACA is still being decided. These young people need to be reminded that they are wanted and that they do matter to us. They should not be a bargaining chip for a wall or a larger immigration bill. This needs to be taken care of now.

It’s really upsetting to me that they are all worried that they may have to leave their lives and the only country they know. They need a permanent place in this country with a path to citizenship. They are all amazing people that have proved to us they are good people with no criminal record.

I also think that, along with a path to citizenship for them, they should have some protections for their parents and immediate family so we do not separate these great people from their families.

Please help decide what is right for them and for their families.

Stephen Hopper, South Haven
