CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — President Trump has apparently found some common ground with Democrats as he urges Congress to legalize the status of DACA recipients.
Chattanooga, like most other cities in the country, has people who were brought here as children, and are seeking advice on whether they may have to leave.
The president has given Congress six months to take that action.
La Paz Chattanooga has been offering assistance to some DACA recipients in filing necessary paperwork.
“The unknown is scary, right? Because you know if you don’t have, you know, we’re stopping the DACA and Congress can make that decision, what if Congress doesn’t make the decision to keep us here? They don’t know. It’s up in the air, and a what if,” said Stacy Johnson, executive director of La Paz Chattanooga.
Johnson says there’s no accurate count on how many residents of Chattanooga may be affected by possible Congressional action.
