New York City has approximately 3 million U.S. citizens who were born in another country.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy allows certain undocumented immigrants to receive a renewable two-year work permit and exemption from deportation, a measure that President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to eliminate during his presidency.

Steven Choi, Executive Director of the New York Immigration Coalition, answers questions the recipients of the policy measure, called the Dreamers, and talks about sanctuary cities and how Trump's proposed policies could impact immigrants' daily lives.
