With the Trump administration announcing the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program (also known as Dreamers) that protected nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation, we take a look at some DACA numbers.
DACA applicants must have come to the U.S. before turning 16.
The estimated percentage of undocumented immigrants who are below the age of 25.
The age immigrants had to be younger than on June 15, 2012, in order to be eligible for DACA.
The number of governors, attorney generals, state legislators, mayors, judges, police chiefs and other community leaders who signed a letter of support for DACA recipients.
The number of total DACA applicants accepted to date from Nigeria, which represents the smallest population that has taken advantage of the program. (The numbers include accepted to date and approved to date program applicants.)
The number of total DACA applicants residing in Wisconsin.
The number of total DACA applicants residing in California, the state with the largest population of immigrants.
The number of total DACA applicants accepted to date from Mexico, which represents the largest population by far that has taken advantage of the program.
The estimated number of immigrants in the U.S.
The estimated amount the U.S. would lose in Gross Domestic Product in the next 10 years without DACA.
