Hello Terp Community!
On November 12, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA). DACA is a program that protects undocumented students / UndocuTerps from deportation and provides a work permit. Given that this program is under threat of being canceled we invite you to show solidarity with UndocuTerps by engaging today and up until our day of action on November 12, 2019.
The Undocumented Student Program has begun to show our solidarity with the undocumented immigrant community through various events and will continue to do so through November 12.
Whether you are an immigrant yourself, have family who is an immigrant, are in solidarity with immigrants, are part of a student organization, faculty committee, or staff affinity space on campus,or you simply want to learn more, we encourage you to show your support and show up to these opportunities and support our immigrant community!
