Protecting DACA for Undocumented LGBTQ People
September 30, 2019: GLAD signed onto documentation in support of the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals. LGBTQ API DACA recipients will face criminal penalties, imprisonment, discrimination, and violence (including death) if they are removed to their countries of birth. The tens of thousands of LGBTQ DACA recipients, especially those who publicly identified themselves as such, will be at increased risk for discrimination and mistreatment if DACA is rescinded.
