<p>A Thursday report on NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> featured the on-screen headline: <strong>&ldquo;The Fear of the Unknown; Hispanics &amp; Muslims Look Ahead to New Administration.&rdquo;</strong> Correspondent Gadi Schwartz began the segment by fretting over the fate of illegal immigrants: &ldquo;Like hundreds of thousands across the country, <strong>Perla Berazza was a student with a secret and a constant fear....she qualified for the Deferred Action Childhood Arrival program created by President Obama....But the program, known as DACA, is in the cross-hairs of President-elect Donald Trump.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>After playing a clip of Trump calling for &ldquo;a whole new set of standards&rdquo; for the nation&rsquo;s immigration system, he warned: <strong>&ldquo;...over 700,000 recipients of DACA</strong>, like University of Arizona freshman Maria Graciagio, <strong>now fear that the information they gave could be used as the beginnings of a deportation registry that could rip families apart.&rdquo;</strong></p>
