Are DACA recipients pawns in the border ‘crisis’?
Erendira Rendon arrived in the US from Oaxaca, Mexico, with her parents at the age of four. Now 33, Rendon works in immigration advocacy in Chicago and she's a DACA recipient. Rendon tells Marco Werman that she's not optimistic that President Trump nor the current Congress will offer a solution for DACA recipients like her. She believes the roughly 800,000 DACA recipients are mere pawns in the ongoing immigration debate.
