9,000 teachers are among those that face deportation without DACA.

If Congress fails to extend DACA, and Trump refuses to agree, over 800,000 Dreamers, non-citizens who came to the U.S. as children and who have lived their entire lives here, face deportation.

From a fact sheet published by the Migration Policy Institute: 

With DACA holders set to begin losing their protection in growing numbers starting early next year—MPI estimates about 915 people on average will fall out of DACA status each day beginning March 6, 2018…

The study finds that college enrollment among Dreamers is roughly the same as the population as a whole.

55% of Dreamers are employed. Most DACA participants (62 percent) who are not in the labor force are enrolled in school.

ƒThere are about 9,000 DACA recipients employed as teachers or similar education professionals, and another 14,000 in health-care practitioner and support jobs.

Removing 9,000 Dreamers from the nations teaching corps will be brutal.

There should be no Continuing Budget Resolution without saving DACA.

Hold Senate Democrats’ feet to the fire on this.
