Is there any data on the financial contribution DACA brings to our economy?
Kassandra, the New American Economy has data on this.
¡Gracias! Thank you Gaby.
Immigrants are more than their economic contribution and labor. We should all be careful about what narrative we push that ends up excluding DACA eligible or DREAM Act eligible individuals from immigration relief.
Magige, each newspaper has a process. But most have an email you can send your oped to. Their emails are usually Oped@localnewspapername.com
But if you reach out to Presidents’ Alliance they can help you place an oped you write.
