    20. Sadhana - DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

    44:36

    Sadhana grew up knowing she was undocumented. She moved to the US with her family from Guyana at the age of thirteen. Her status kept her from accomplishing many of her goals, like getting her driver's license and going to college, but that all changed when DACA was introduced. DACA opened up doors for Sadhana but it wasn't a permanent solution. Especially after the 2016 election and the threat to end DACA from the new administration. Tune in to find out the brave decision Sadhana and her husband made to free themselves from the weight of living undocumented in the United States. I hope this conversation will shed light on a topic that is often in the news but still misunderstood by many.  *Listen to the Above Status Podcast *Check out Above Status on Instagram: @abovestatus *Check out Sadhana's Instagram: @mysinghlove
