Immigration attorney Win Eaton says the end of DACA would have a big impact on Bakersfield. 

"It's going to affect everything from restaurants to lawn mowing to service industries," said Eaton.

If Dreamers are already enrolled in DACA, they are protected until next March. If people have not already applied, it's too late for them. 

Eaton says he hopes Congress will pass a new Dream Act before next March to avoid the current Dreamers from being deported.
