Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was put to an end under the Trump administration, affecting many students nationwide.

Students gathered outside of the Bell Memorial Union on campus expressing their thoughts over the decision, Tuesday morning.

Elizabeth Alaniz, a Chico State Faculty Member and DREAM Assistant Director, said “I am here for all students and here to debunk rumors that some students can not attend college anymore.”

” It is really important to make use of all the resources on campus regarding deportation. . . the Dream Center is always open for support to students whether it be financially or academically”, said Alaniz.

The Dream Center is located at Siskiyou Hall 115.

During the protest students chanted:

“Our students, our nation, we need an education”.

“Up, up with education! Down, down with deportation!”

“No Trump, No K.K.K., No Facist USA”.

“No borders, no nation, stop deportation!”
