Alicia Menendez, contributing editor for Bustle, explains what the new push for sanctuary homes is all about. The term sanctuary homes applies to anyone who employs a domestic worker (housekeeper, nanny, or caretaker) who may not have legal status in the United States.
Menendez explains being a sanctuary home can be as simple as allowing your domestic employee to use your printer to print legal documents. She says it's important to have a conversation with your employee in case that person is detained or deported.
Menendez also explains how the fight over DACA isn't just affecting DREAMers, it's affecting their friends. U.S. citizens who've had friends their entire lives are suddenly faced with the prospect of never seeing them again if Congress fails to reach an agreement on DACA.
