My life with DACA: Preparing for deportation

Alex Velez will be in the U.S. undocumented after her DACA expires on March 6 – one day after Congress has to decide a solution for her and nearly 700,000 others. CNNMoney’s Vanessa Yurkevich talks to Alex about how she is planning for two realities.

  1. I'm sorry but I think there should be no daca there are Americans who are dreamers and they can't get on look after them first and War vetrons are not exactly taken care of it should be them first apart from anything she sounds like she is complaining we don't get this and we don't get that etc

  2. She thinks she is hard done by because she doesn't get any financial help or any health insurance well welcome to the real world other people who work full time to feed their children don't either they can't afford it

  3. I am sick of hearing undocumented they are illegal and should be called that they should also rescind daca it's only right for the people that arrive the right way and I'm not even American

  4. GET RID OF WELFARE DACA FOR ILLEGALS, THE MORE WE GET OUT OF HERE THE BETTER WE DO NOT WANT CRIMNALS THEY ARE ALL CRIMNALS .THEY INVADED OUR COUNTRY, WE HAVE LAWS U DON'T ABIDE BY THE LAW, THEY COME HERE FIR FREEBES. THEY DON'T HAVE ANY RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY, NONE U PEOPLE ARE NOT AMIERICAN CITIZENS, SO PACK YOUR SHIT GET THE F K OUT !

  5. My father served in the military in exchange for citizenship. He fought in Vietnam, Korea and Cuba. He didn't get financial aid or DACA. He got PTSD, horrible treatment from anti-war sympathizers. So shut the f@%k up. So tired of hearing you whine.

  6. DACA recipients brought to the United Stated as children do not have a choice. They are raised in the US, they go to school in the US, make friends, learn the language, and come to see the US as their only home because that is all they have ever known. Some of these DREAMers don't remember the country they were born in. Some don't even know that they are undocumented until it is time to go to college, get a driver's license, or when applying to a job.

  7. We should obey and ENFORCE our laws. If we don't, it will send a very bad message: we can shoplift, so any crime and think we may get away with it, especially if a few years pass. We can beg for sympathy like so many others have.

  8. For those against daca hear my words: Imagine being brought up by your parents as a toddler (as most) traveling to another country with them (who knows about laws at that age?) and going to elementary, middle, high school and college until one day some ice agent asks where are your damn papers? Lol we got tons of toilet paper under our stairs bitch! And then you get deported? Lol where the fuck am i going now? 😱

  9. These criminals should forfeit all financials and property, they should not benefit from living in the U.S. without a penalty. You cannot benefit from a criminal enterprise, they should pay the country back for medical, housing, welfare. Deport there children too.

  10. I’m left leaning and am baffled why Washington can’t secure workers rights here. I can’t bargain my wage if illegals are willing to replace me in a moments notice.

  11. You should have gotten ready the moment you came here! Sooner or later you should have known the government would enforce the laws passed by congress! Yes, by congress! Trumps job as president is enforcement not law making! The democrats during Obama and Bidden time for 2 years could have taken care of this but then couldn't feign political shock! They didn't care!!! They were too busy bashing Bush!!!

  12. Hate hearing their countries are dangerous yet after arriving here then months later go on vacation to latin America, Africa, asia and middle east how quickly their fears disappear.

  13. I'm sorry for your suffering. Your parents brought it upon you. However regardless of your suffering Americans should be put first. Take what you have learned go home and make your country great. I think you got a damn good deal seeing as how you shouldn't have been here in the first place.

  14. WHY do people WorldWide think they can INVADE any nation they choose and immediately be eligible for every benefit.

    In the US, as well as many other Western Nations, the INVADERS are getting MANY BENEFITS and FREEBIES that Citizens aren't elgible for….but for which citizens are expected to PAY FOR!!

    IT ISN'T FAIR!

  15. "We don't get health insurance like you do" so, who pays for all the anchor babies you have ? Whatch in the Hosp, if you don't speak good Eng. they don't ask for your ins.card like they ask everyone else!!

  16. Bye  —– and don't come back!  Just remember who did this to you – the Democrats.  Trump tried to make 2 million DACA residents legal.  He just wanted and end to Chain migration and the lottery system.  The Democrats are only interested in future Democrat voters (illegals vote largely for Dumbocrats) and declined.    BTW, my grandparents came here without the government supplying them with health insurance, food stamps, housing, etc.  If you can't do that for yourself, don't come!
