This figure was released by the Center for American Progress that, based on information from the Citizenship Service (USCIS), set off alarms about the first consequences of the measure.
It is a sudden change in the rules of the game that came with the announcement.
Previously, all DACA beneficiaries had the right to request the renewal of their permit three months in advance of its expiration; however, that term was reduced to one month when Sessions announced the end of the program on September 5.
According to information from the USCIS, 154,000 "dreamers" under the protection of DACA were eligible for renewal to the extent that the permit expired within six months given by Trump to Congress to create a new legal framework on the subject.
The problem is that 22,000 were unable to file their application, many of them due to a strange error in the handle of the applications by the postal service. According to the study, to date, 7,900 DACA beneficiaries have lost their permit without the possibility of renewing it. That means 122 undocumented Americans who swell the number of people at risk of being deported by the Trump Administration every day.
The problem is not only to face the risk of deportation, it is also something more imminent: the loss of work permits implies the loss of employment or at least the pauperization of the working conditions of thousands of dreamers (91 percent) that today have a job thanks to DACA.
