On March 22, 2018, The Washington Post released a story on the younger generation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, also known as Dreamers. Specifically, these young people between the ages of 16 and 18 are unable to continue some of their future goals due to the closing of DACA applications. Many of these teens were planning to apply for DACA later on in their educational careers due to the costly application fee. However, once the current political administration decided to shut DACA down, it was too late for these teenagers to apply. For most of these Dreamers, this means that their educational opportunities will have to be delayed or minimized in a capacity that will fit their current non-protected status.
