83% support pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants

"I appreciate that my colleagues recognize the need to pass legislation giving a path to citizenship to Dreamers, young immigrants who were brought here as children and grew up in this country - so do 75 percent of the American people".

Due to the diverse population of students, faculty and staff in our college, the recent decision by President Donald Trump regarding the DACA could be of serious effect to our school community. The United States is now at risk of businesses prematurely firing employees or probing workers for information on their immigration status. "But I feel like everything happens for a reason - so hopefully Congress acts". It made things like driving, and the chance of going to college very hard.

This proposal addresses some immigration hardliners' concerns by not allowing those in the program to sponsor family members to come to the United States. Those who stay out of trouble, as the clear majority does, should be eligible for driver's licenses and work permits; they should also be expected to pay taxes. What does this mean for his future?

In the email, he reminded the CSI community that there will be NO action taken in enforcing these new, reformed immigration laws unless required by law.

Aside from DREAMers like Bat who already had their work permit, there are those soon-to-be DREAMers who now see their options disappearing.

"We're having volunteer attorneys".

TWU President and Chancellor Dr. Carine M. Feyten sent an email to students covering the topic of DACA and how the university will be handling it. Feyten announced "Texas Woman's University remains committed to serve its students, regardless of national origin", and even though there is a new law put into place, TWU is working to allow all students to finish their education. When she first came here with her husband, A.G, and their daughter, she says they did not plan to overstay their B2 visitor visa but at the last minute they chose to take the risk and stay in order to give their children the best possible education. At that point they could apply for their parents. "Being undocumented does not define them, or me". I brought my son when he was 4 years old, he grew up here, he learned the language, he is accustomed to the culture... This might be too much to ask for, but I can always DREAM, right? Counseling and Psychological Services are available for students to talk with someone in a safe and confidential environment.

A leading state educator urged undocumented students to renew their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status and apply for the DACA renewal scholarship before a Friday deadline. "Compassion and common sense tell me that these young people are part of American society, having known no other reality, and so the US government should acknowledge this reality and give them a pathway to citizenship".

"We have an abundance of resources, people who have stepped up", she said. Some conservatives are warning that any compromise involving DACA or building the wall could cost Trump the support that won him the presidency.

According to Dr. Cleary, Washington state has provided two pieces of legislature that will now protect funding for the 18,000 DACA students in state as well as DACA awareness and the WAFSA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) programs. "Once again, unnecessary, irresponsible, and cruel".

Jesus Perez of Phoenix says he's not sure he would have been able to come up with the cash in time to renew were it not for the financial help of an advocacy group that is among several giving financial aid and helping people fill out their paperwork in time. And for those of you who think dreamers are all gang members and criminals, you'd be wrong, as usual.

Since the President's announcement, many groups have lead large scale rallies to protest his decision, including highly visible ones outside of Trump Tower in New York City.
