Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper focuses on a case study of the immigration narratives of undocumented college students and graduated students and their relationship to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) law that was put into effect by President Obama in 2012. We use a critical legal studies lens to analyze their narratives. We highlight how interactions with the law affect participants’ legal consciousness and their negotiation of universities along with other institutions. This analysis allows for a better understanding of how the undocumented students and graduates navigate their “illegality." Our paper provides insights that can be drawn upon by legal, educational, and immigration reformers who are interested in comprehending how DACA and other relevant laws and policies affect undocumented young adults.
