Our Report: "In Their Own Words"
TheDream.US released “In Their Own Words,” a report summarizing the responses from our survey of 1,400 of our DACA and TPS Scholars. It provides a unique picture of our Scholars' employment and educational gains while sharing the uncertainty and anxiety that Scholars face in a difficult immigration climate, particularly with the impending end of DACA and TPS.

Included are recommendations for federal, state, and local policymakers; higher education institutions; the business community; mental health providers; and community members to help empower and enable immigrant students to succeed.
