Out of Rodrigo’s three kids, his middle son is in the most unique situation.
The youngest is a U.S. citizen and the oldest a DACA recipient. But the middle kid is not authorized to be in the country.
“It’s frustrating,” Rodrigo told WPLN News in Spanish. “You don’t want to feel like you are living in the shadows.”
Rodrigo, who didn’t want his last name used because of his immigration status, says his kid has been without a legal status since he arrived in the U.S., and when he was about to apply for DACA in 2017, President Donald Trump announced he was ending the program.
