This petition had 750 supporters
As Indiana residents, we ask you to defend and keep DACA for the nearly 800,000 across the country and an estimated 10,000 in the state of Indiana. Please do the right thing and uphold DACA. Defending DACA is the right thing for Indiana and the nation.
As Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) who responded on Sep 4, 2017, saying the United States does not “hold children legally accountable for the actions of their parents.” https://goo.gl/FgqxH8
95% of those in DACA are in school or working, buying homes, and starting businesses. For these individuals to get a social security card, obtain a driver’s license, have the opportunity to build their credit, get a job with benefits, and put their utility bills in their own name is the basic benefit of DACA. These individuals were raised in Indiana and contribute to our communities and economy.
