With Trump DACA Repeal Looming, Delaware State Students in Focus

In 2016, Delaware State University became the only historically black university to join a coalition of colleges to offer undocumented immigrant students a chance at higher education. In its second year, DSU’s DREAMER program boasted its second cohort of students, with high-entering marks and rave performance reviews for its inaugural class.

But a decision from President Donald Trump to repeal the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program with a six-month buffer for Congressional reforms, may cause Delaware State’s diverse class of scholars to discontinue their studies and possibly face deportation.
