Monday is the Trump administration’s official deadline to end the DACA program, although pending legal challenges have delayed that.

There are around 800,000 DACA recipients currently living in the U.S, including more than 20,000 here in Arizona.

Karina Ruiz is one of those DACA recipients. She was brought here as a child from Mexico City and now has three U.S.-born children. She’s currently in D.C., speaking to lawmakers. The Show caught up with her outside on the National Mall.
