GREENVILLE, SC – Since the Trump administration announced the end of the 2012 Executive Order protecting from deportation thousands of young people brought into the United States at an early age, while at the same time granting them a work permit which allows them almost come out of the shadows of their undocumented legal status, there has been an on-going effort to bring about a permanent solution to the lives of almost 800 thousand Dreamers, as these young people are called.

Last Friday the Hispanic Business Council of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce hosted Friday Forum, an event held the last Friday every month to bring a topic of interest before the Greenville business community.

This time Tripp James, who coordinates the event for the Greenville Chamber worked with the Hispanic Business Council (HBC) led by Sara Montero Buria to bring about some light on a subject transcending the immigration and political arenas.

HBC arranged for community activist and advocate, Will McCorkle to address the Greenville community of business people on the subject of DACA and how this is not only affecting young Latino students but the business community at large.

McCorkle gave the room filled crowd a fact driven presentation on DACA and its impact beyond the lives of the thousands of young Dreamers impacted.

Following some the comments from this most interesting Friday Forum:

Nika White: Robust discussion at today's Greenville Chamber Friday Forum focused on DACA student immigrants and our changing workforce. Many thanks to Will McCorkle for being our speaker and challenging us to each do what we can to leverage our voice and influence in support of our DACA students. #Dreamers@ Hilton Greenville

Geoff Wasserman: Fantastic and challenging program this morning!

Adela Mendoza stated, As Congress is challenged with crafting bipartisan legislation to address DACA and immigration; this conversation could not be more relevant. This was a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding on this complex topic!

This conversation must go beyond the community of Dreamers, it must go before those who have the power to influence our Congressmen to bring about a solution to not only the lives of some 800,000 DACA students but how not finding a solution deprives our nation of the talents of these fine young people
