Closing Activity or Exit Ticket: Each student should choose one quote from the previous activity that he or she disagrees with and write a thoughtful response capturing what they think about the DACA program and what Congress should do.Hundreds of thousands of so-called Dreamers — young adult immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children — could face possible deportation unless Congress can find a solution in the coming weeks. What should Americans who care about this issue do?In September, President Trump announced he would not renew the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, that provides these young people with certain temporary protections. In this lesson, students learn more about the immigrants affected by this political standoff; evaluate the policy proposals being debated; and explore ways to have their voices heard on one of the most contentious issues in American politics._________Warm Up Barometer or Paired Activity: Share the four statements below with students and ask them to decide whether they agree or disagree with each.About 800,000 young unauthorized immigrants are protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.We spoke with a few of them in September, when President Trump announced his intention to end the Obama-era program.
