On Friday, September 20, 2013, the Center for American Progress released a report on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The report entitled “Undocumented No More” is a nationwide analysis of DACA’s implementation over the last year. The (51) page report has many great sections, from summarizing DACA to how the different regions of the country have implemented it and how that has caused differences. The report has a section entitled;” The gendered dimensions of DACA” which examines how DACA is being implemented across gender lines, which is not something that we have seen discussed before and is very interesting. We encourage you to read the report.
The Center for American Progress describes itself is an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. The Center which is headquartered in Washington, D.C. is a Public Policy Think Tank!
