Immigration Is Not A Political Issue, It’s A Humanitarian Issue

Olsa Cano Interview With VOA

Olsa Alikaj-Cano,  discusses the uncertainties surrounding the DACA program. She emphasizes the emotional and cultural ties DACA recipients have to the U.S., even if they have roots in other countries. Alikaj-Cano highlights the vulnerability of the DACA program, noting that its status can change with different administrations, as seen during former President Trump’s tenure. She stresses that many DACA recipients arrived in the U.S. as children, often without any say in the matter, and believes it’s unjust to penalize them for decisions made by their parents.

Olsa Alikaj-Cano, an immigration attorney with her own law office in Houston, Texas, tells VOA that one of the main problems is that DACA could be revoked at any time, citing as an example the efforts of the administration of former President Trump to rescind the program.

“After three years, if another President comes in, he can take away DACA as a program and all the students, or those who work here, the doctors, the scientists, everybody who is here with DACA will be in the same position as they were before to had the DACA program,”

She says she often deals with DACA applicants and beneficiaries in her work, and that children cannot be punished for the actions of their parents.
“They came to America at a young age, most of them without their knowledge, some, as I said before, they were even as young as a week old and they didn’t have any right to choose the way that they came to America.”
