University of Illinois: Ending DACA Creates Uncertainty for Students

Undocumented students, with or without DACA status, already are banned from receiving such federal aid as the Pell grants, federally subsidized loans and work-study jobs. "These students embody the American dream". These youth need our protection and encouragement, and it is incumbent upon Congress to approve legislation that removes the uncertainty caused by President Trump's misguided decision. Chanting "up, up with liberation; down, down with deportation", the crowd filled about three quarters of Tercentenary Theatre.

"My whole life I have always looked behind my should scared, anxious about if I was going to get caught, if I was going to get detained, if I was going to...if something was going to happen", Lara said. "I could focus on worrying about my parents and the rest of my community, because I was safe".

DACA was implemented in 2012 by the Obama administration, and allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors with their parents to stay in the US on a two-year renewable period of deferred action from deportation, and allows them to be eligible for a work permit.

The program, created in 2012, protects hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who were brought into the United States as children.

The program protects undocumented immigrants who were illegally brought into the United States by their parents.

In making the announcement Tuesday, the Trump administration said there will be a "wind-down" period and not an abrupt end to DACA. "It's a step back". Loh said "UMD will continue to identify all avenues for offering support" to DACA students, and explained that information would be updated on the university's website.

California officials emphasize that California scholarship information is kept confidentially and separately from federal immigration paperwork and that they would resist any federal attempt to get access to the material.

What is DACA and does it have any effect on a student being allowed to enroll in a California high school or college?

"I am sorry but I am swamped all day today responding to students' concerns about DACA", he wrote.

Still, several speakers and attendees called on Harvard to go further and declare the University a "sanctuary campus".

"We would like to see that happen".

During the second lunch, Gutierrez met with his friends, juniors Yazmine Sagastume and Emerie Clark, and joined an estimated 200 students who walked out in protest of the DACA repeal and headed to the ICE offices on Central Avenue. "We must remember that people fought for it and risked deportation... so my activism doesn't end because I will no longer be protected and yours shouldn't either".

Now the future of Dreamers lies in the hands of Congress.

"We are heartbroken for our undocumented immigrant communities". "We will continue to vigorously pursue the CSU's commitment to advance and extend knowledge, learning and culture; to provide opportunities for individuals to develop intellectually, personally and professionally; and to prepare educated and responsible alumni who are ready and able to contribute to California's culture and economy".
