Message from Wichita State University on DACA

Message from Wichita State University on DACA

Rally leaders encouraged the group to call lawmakers to voice their support of DACA. "It's nice that the two [communities] are coming together for one common goal - justice".

State officials and political candidates also criticized the move.

In making the announcement Tuesday, the Trump administration said there will be a "wind-down" period and not an abrupt end to DACA.

"I've long said I didn't agree with the way the previous administration went about enacting DACA, but we must protect children who are already here in this country and those who are now protected under DACA", she said in a statement. Rangel is among an estimated 800,000 people protected from deportation under the program.

But in a November statement, ASU President Michael Crow pledged his to commitment to DACA students, saying "If DACA is eliminated we will rise to the challenge".

However, reports are coming out that he will end DACA but will put off the termination for six months.

"These are human beings", said Lopez.

As you can imagine, just the thought of having to start all over again in a foreign country is frightening to say the least. Set to be deported on September 29, the Ramos' parents came to America 24 years ago and worked as law-abiding citizens to support their sons, one of whom is 17 and the other in his early 20s.

Trump's DACA Decision Puts Dreamers' Future In The Hands Of Congress
In a post on his Facebook page, Gleason said , "This decision makes tonight's silent candlelight vigil all the more important". The officials who said they are considering suing the federal government are yet to reveal what the legal basis would be.

"These people have never known any other place to live", said Diane Mather, retired ISU faculty.

In 2015 Missouri passed a law that prohibited DACA students from receiving scholarships for school.

She says the school is in contact with any students who are affected by Tuesday's decision, offering support and assistance. University System of Georgia officials declined comment Tuesday on the decision, citing litigation over whether DACA students can pay in-state tuition.

The White House said applications already in the pipeline will be reviewed.

Every Washington University student - regardless of immigration status, race, ethnicity, nationality or any other identity - deserves the same opportunity for academic success. But you know something? You are an integral part of our community, and we remain committed to protecting your welfare and ensuring that you are able to participate fully in university life.

Frank's email addressed the vitality of DACA students on campus.

Under Yale Police Department (YPD) policies, citizenship status has no effect on how the department interacts with a member of the Yale community.

Hannah Melissa Borja is a third-year student at UVa who is involved with DREAMers on Grounds and advocates for undocumented immigrants.
