UC, East Bay organizations rally behind undocumented community after DACA repeal

Employers Should Have Plan in Place for End of DACA

"It's not just (ending) a program, it's basically disrupting your whole life", Garcia, 29, said.

The report was crafted by a coalition of students, administrators, and professors that convened this past spring after the college announced its decision to be a sanctuary campus in December. "It's much more competitive to get in, and they don't give out scholarships like they do here".

5, the Justice Department announced that DACA, an Obama-era executive order also known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, would be terminated unless Congress could pass a bill in the next six months. As soon as March, some of the 800,000 young adults nationwide in the program, including Mendoza, will become eligible for deportation and lose their right to work legally. "We're carrying on with business just as we always carry on with business".

And perhaps neither do federal lawmakers.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other political leaders stood with Judy Chu and Chirayu Patel on Tuesday. Most of these people came here so young, they only know the American culture.

"We don't want to politicize it", Carey-Butler said. "We're not looking at amnesty". Los Angeles union organizer Hassan Zuniga told us "this affects my life, to be an undocumented person, if we don't do something about it".

One of the greatest points of anxiety vented by those at the conversation who are directly impacted by the repeal is that the government now has personal information about them.

Munin said UWO is working to help students who are affected by the removal of DACA.

That uncertainty is felt throughout Ventura County, which is home to as many as 50,000 undocumented immigrants, according to the Pew Research Center.

In many ways our country is at a historical crossroads-will we land on the right side of history? More importantly, I do believe student-led protests can make a positive impact on society if they're done thoughtfully, and if they are met with other actions such as calling our state representatives, volunteering at nonprofits and staying as informed as possible on the issue. Without DACA and their documented status, they would be unable to work taxed-income jobs.

Natalicio also suggested that students who feel nervous or scared to contact Dean of Students Dr. Catie McCorry-Andalis or to visit the university counseling center.

Martinez was also complimentary of the school's efforts since the national news about DACA. The Immigrant Worker Project supports migrant laborers that come to work in OH and Stewart describes DACA's impact on the state as "a harsh blow".

"There is no Plan B", he said. Current DACA recipients are allowed a two-year renewal of their permits at a cost of $500.

Employers who have employees authorized to work under the program should be mindful of when such employees' authorizations are scheduled to expire. The last authorization would end March 5, 2020.

AB540 students can apply for the Dream Act to receive financial aid as well as qualify for the Board of Governors Fee Waiver to pay semester fees and Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) at CCC. If a student is undocumented, they would not have that paperwork, and therefore could not work for the university.

"It is imperative we come together now more than ever, because when one of us has our freedom stripped, none of us are free", Gathoga-Ogbuike said. ICE and Border Patrol said in separate memorandums in 2011 and 2013, respectively, that educational institutions, hospitals and churches would be considered sensitive locations.

U.S. Rep. Steve Knight (RSimi Valley) released a statement encouraging his colleagues in Congress to take the opportunity to review the policy closely. "Their status deserves a thorough and thoughtful review".

Martha Arevalo with the Central American Resource Center near downtown Los Angeles said there's also the challenge of getting the word out to those who may not know about the October deadline. She said she has seen things that still haunt her today.

She also advocated that the students continue to keep going to school and that they will do everything they can to help them. She, however, appreciated that Chancellor Subbaswamy emailed a statement following the administration's announcement.

With the future of DACA uncertain, Eliana is still thinking about her kids first. This week, both Trump and Congressional Democrats said a deal might be in the offing to save the program.

Sarah said her childhood innocence was shattered when she mistook the echoes of gunpowder, atop a hill a street away from her house, for fireworks.

"We do not ask about immigration status or anything even if people are inquiring about admission", she said.

"He was hoping to find a good job", Sarah said.
