The sixteen-year-old stated she’s led a common American teenage life, however she’s discovered distinctions in between her and her peers.”I always thought that I would be able to get a job just like everybody else and get my driver’s license just like everybody else, but as I got older, I realized I didn’t have that,” stated Saldana Castillo.Saldana Castillo immigrated with her mama from Mexico to the United States when she was just one. “This is all I’ve ever known,” stated Saldana Castillo.Her mom started operating at just 8 years of ages, never ever getting the chance for an education. “She didn’t want me to live the life that she lived through,” stated Saldana Castillo.In June, the Supreme Court obstructed the Trump Administration’s effort to end DACA, and Alondra’s migration lawyer, Julia Cryne, stated a December judgment in a federal court, re-opened the application procedure, enabling kids like Alondra to be qualified when again. “We’ve been able to help new applicants apply for DACA,” stated Cryne.Under the Trump administration, a number of migration and refugee programs were rolled back to enable less individuals into the U.S. Policies started to alter and policies and requirements tightened up.
