In early September, President Trump announced the end of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) if Congress does not act within six months to authorize the program. A lack of action by Congress would impact 800,000 young adults who have been granted protections under DACA, including 230,000 California residents. The majority are employed and almost half are currently in school.
The Chamber has long supported immigrant-friendly policies, including AB 540, the California Dream Act, and comprehensive immigration reform. We understand the powerful impact that immigrants have on our economy. Research shows that without a legislative solution to authorize DACA or DREAM Act policies, California will experience a major economic setback because young immigrants are crucial to our state's workforce. And with good reason -- according to the Center for American Progress, California would suffer a GDP loss of $11.3 billion a year.
 
Join us for a timely discussion on the future of Dreamers, impacts to employers who have hired DACA recipients and Congress' efforts to protect their livelihood in the only place they call home.
 
The Education & Workforce Development Council leads business community and educator partnerships to reform our public education and develop the 21st century workforce to successfully compete in the global economy.
