We stand with Education Austin and United We Dream in opposition to the statements by US Attorney General, Jeff Sessions yesterday regarding DACA. We support the right to education for all those living in the US, regardless of citizenship status. This is a legal right. And for those immigrants who have pursued college and are now working in their chosen profession, it makes no sense to threaten deportation. In fact, threats of deportation for any immigrant make it harder on families and especially the young people within families who are being made to feel afraid of government policies targeting them. Threatening young people is cruel. We appreciate DREAMERS, DACAmented and undocumented students who are sharing their stories and standing together to say, "Here to Stay."
