“I want Dreamers for our children also,” Trump told Time. “We’re going to work something out. On a humanitarian basis it’s a very tough situation. We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud. But that’s a very tough situation.”
Universities and cities across the country are amping up their support for DACAmented students, as well as undocumented peoples in the Sanctuary Movement. They are creating or bolstering their commitment to Sanctuary Campuses and Sanctuary cities!
Today, November 13, 2016, in a meeting of concerned community organizers in Athens, GA, we decided to start a daily update/watch on the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) as many of our family, friends, students, and loved ones are recipients of DACA.
❝Among the whole immigration attorney community, there is a lot of uncertainty in what will happen once Trump becomes president. There are attorneys on both sides with respect to DACA."
