On Tuesday evening, students, faculty and other University of Portland community members gathered on the steps of Franz Hall for a vigil in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The future of about 700,000 undocumented immigrants — including students at the University of Portland like Lagunas — will be affected when the Supreme Court decides whether or not it was legal for President Barack Obama to create DACA without congressional approval in 2012. Oral arguments begin on Nov. 12, and a decision is expected in 2020. On Monday night, Diversity and Inclusion programming and Latinx Student Union sponsored a panel to discuss the U.S. immigration system and how the upcoming Supreme Court hearing will affect DACA.
