Hundreds Of Colleges Mobilize To Defend Immigrant Students
from The Washington Post
Hundreds of college and university leaders have mobilized in recent days to defend students who immigrated to the United States as children, without legal permission, and now face a swirl of questions about their future under President-elect Donald Trump. The Obama administration has aided these undocumented students since 2012, through a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA, as it is known, shields immigrants temporarily from deportation if they came to United States before their 16th birthday and meet other requirements. Beneficiaries are able to obtain a work permit. Opponents denounce DACA as executive overreach.
