In just one sentence: What scares you most about the college admission process?
Many of these universities share the same sentiments – support for their students that are Dreamers and a shared responsibility to embrace those students with acceptance. Some universities have encouraged students, faculty and staff and administrators to contact Congress and advocate on behalf of their fellow students. But Harvard University is truly going above and beyond – which isn’t at all surprising. After all, it’s Harvard. The Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinical Program (HIRC) at Harvard Law School hired a full-time attorney to provide legal services, as reported by USA Today College. The university is also offering guidance, weekly support groups and individual counsel to DACA students in addition to a 24/7 hotline for undocumented students. Finally, the university has composed a list of attorneys offering to work pro bono for affected students. Since the Trump Administration announcement, the President has gone back and forth on his support for DACA and all of its recipients. He has also saddled Congress with the burden of figuring out DACA in addition to a potential immigration overhaul within the next few months. Essentially, DACA is up in the air, but with plenty of support from colleges and universities, DACA recipients can be rest assured that they have more support from their administrators, mentors and peers than not.
