Encourage Susan Collins to stand behind the DACA kids

This petition had 1,756 supporters

The lives of the DACA kids, and the lives of their families, are in danger. The DACA kids are facing possible deportation to a foreign land they've never known as home. Trump's decision to dismantle this program puts 800,000 lives into limbo. DACA  allows people who were brought to America as children by their parents to stay in this country on conditions. This opportunity is only available to individuals with no criminal background, and currently either in school, graduated, in the military, a veteran, or working. Around 100 Mainers are DACA recipients, and Senator Susan Collins should feel obligated to protect them. Our class at USM has created this petition to urge her to support a clean DREAM Act that would allow these upstanding Americans to stay in the US.
