(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Uncertainty over the future of the DACA program was on the minds of many in St. Joseph today.
The Interfaith Alliance for Immigrants gathered at the Webster Learning Center Thursday morning.
The Alliance helps raise awareness of issues and needs of immigrants in the community. An end to the DACA program could jeopardize hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.
"Young adults and their families are caught in this limbo that has to be not just disruptive but terrifying," Interserv Executive Director Dave Howery said. "What's my place? I've grown up here, went to school here, I've worked and other opportunities and now I'm being pushed to look at a place I don't even know."
In September, President Trump said he was pulling the plug on DACA, but so far it remains in place.
