Pinoy DACA recipient hangs hope for immigration reform on next president

LAS VEGAS – Pinoys in Southern Nevada who are recipients of President Barack Obama’s deferred action for childhood arrivals program (DACA) are now clinging to what the next president will do to permanently fix the country’s immigration system. They want to know what will happen to them after their two-year work permits expire.

    I saw your report on the undocumented employees whose employers have not appropriately paid correct wages and may retaliate for possibly filing the complaint.

    The spokesperson being interviewed suggested documenting the hours of work and to not be afraid to report for possible retaliation. It may be true that the federal government protects both documented and undocumented employees from retaliation, the spokesperson should have not made a blanket statement. There are statutes and case law that goes back to 1984 that could be argued by both parties.

    A better suggestion should have been to consult with both a employment law attorney and an immigration attorney to seek the best possible solution.
    There are visas like the
    VAWA, U and T visas that can be availed of prior to filing any complaint with Dept of Labor.
