This story by Andrea Castillo of The Oregonian (Portland, Ore.) shows the real and positive impact of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This federal program is for people commonly known as “Dreamers,” who were brought to this country as children.

The Oregon Association of Nurseries has pushed for this program as part of its drive for comprehensive immigration reform.
