California Education Leaders Vow to Protect DACA Students

California campus leaders began a furious pushback after Trump Administration announced that it would end protections to 800,000 young immigrants in the country without legal status.

California is home of nation’s largest Student concentration of about 214,000 as of last year, who received temporary protection from deportation by Obama DACA. From large campuses to small campus educational leaders all came together on Tuesday and took a vow that they would protect their vulnerable students.

University of California president Janet Napalitano quickly announced in a statement that the 10 campus UC system, which educates 4000 estimated students who are in country without legal status, would keep fighting to defend its students.

Napalitano said, “This backward-thinking, far-reaching move threatens to separate families and derail the futures of some of this country’s brightest young minds, thousands of whom currently attend or have graduated from the University of California”.

Napalitano and two other leaders sent letter to California’s Congressional delegation urging congress to provide long term security and a path to citizenship for the DACA students.

“This is the time to hit the streets and organize. DACA doesn’t define us”, said an immigrant student.

Due to end of DACA program nation would lose many young talented minds that will help in nation’s growth.
