Today, September 5th, the Trump administration chose to rescind DACA —a program which began under the Obama administration that provides eligible participants protection against deportation and the ability to work legally.
Ending DACA will have devastating effects for both the 800,000 people in the program, as well as their families. The California State University system serves approximately 8,000 students who are beneficiaries of the program, many of whom have been able to finance their education and support their families because of their ability to work legally.
Currently, there are bipartisan, bicameral legislative efforts, including the reintroduction of the DREAM Act that would place into law the protections provided by DACA. A link to the DREAM Act can be found here.
