My DACA Life (Mi Vida DACA) aims to answer the question “What is home?”  While in high school, Maribel discovered that she is an undocumented immigrant.  For years she lived in fear of getting deported from the only country she knew. Then, in 2012, Maribel benefited from Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the action enacted by President Barack Obama that allowed her to get a work permit and exemption from deportation.  After 25 years of being undocumented, she was  allowed to visit Mexico.  We follow her as she visits her birthplace in hopes of finding answers to the question: where does she belong?  Then Donald Trump was elected president, and he rescinded DACA. Maribel and fellow immigrants raise their voices in support of dreamers by marching, and going to Washington D.C. to meet with lawmakers and advocate for immigration reform.
