FEATURING CHARLES KUCK – A well-known immigrant rights and undocumented activist was recently denied her DACA renewal by Donald Trump’s government. Jessica Colotl became prominent in 2010 when she was pulled over for driving without a license. She found herself at the center of the debate over immigration and was eventually granted a stay of deportation.
Now, her registration under the Obama-era program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was denied. President Trump had canceled the program giving Congress a deadline to come up with legislative solution. But those with current DACA status were allowed to renew their status until October 5th.
Jessica Colotl’s lawyers are now fighting her DACA denial.
