This panel is organized and hosted by the recently relaunched journal, Politics & Space (Environment and Planning C). Speakers include graduate students in geography who are researching and affected by DACA, faculty and administrators working to support affected students, and young people excluded from DACA who hold other forms of liminal and precarious status. The panel provides a platform to share information and hold dialogue about DACA, its history, politicization, and the challenges facing individuals and families affected within and beyond the United States. The Trump administration has further politicized this issue and intensified border and migration enforcement, at the border, in interior domestic territory, and beyond US sovereign territory. Combined with racist discourse, this anti-immigrant, xenophobic climate and enforcement agenda has rendered many people, families, and communities more precarious.
