Dominicans ‘disappointed’ with US President Donald Trump’s immigration policies
A Dominican immigrant who works as a dominican haberdasher is unhappy with the Trump administration’s immigration policy.
Theresa Hernandez, who works in a dominico hair salon in the Bronx, said she’s “disappointed” with the president’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
She’s upset because she feels like we were given an opportunity to be here and get a chance to prove ourselves.
“She said the program gave her a chance and she wanted to be part of that.”
But I don’t want to be a scapegoat.
I want to live and I want a future for my children and grandchildren and I don´t want to become a scapegoate.
“She added: “We need a voice and we need to be heard.
“Dominican immigration policy was in question under President Donald Trumps administration.
The White House said it would end the DACA program in January 2020.
In a statement, it said: “The Trump administration is taking bold action to help millions of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and to make their lives here as happy as possible.”
