On a Serious Note
The announcement comes while Congress is in the midst of a heated showdown over immigration that started in September when President Donald Trump stated that he will end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program that protected DREAMERS from deportation and granted them legal status to work and study in the U.S. If Washington fails to pass an amendment by March 5, then nearly 800,000 DREAMERS will be at risk for deportation. Their dreams of higher education will also be in jeopardy since it will cause many immigrants to live in the shadows.
According to the Department of Education, a 2015 report reveals that only 5% to 10% of 65,000 undocumented students who graduate high school enrolled in college. That statistic, however, would likely worsen if Congress does not act.
