NewImageIllegal. Illegal. Illegal. What’s not to know? 


Washington State University President Kirk Schulz is defending illegal immigrant students following the Trump Administration’s plans regarding “Dreamers”. The White House announced plans this week to terminate the Federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. Those so called “Dreamers” were brought to the US illegally as children. President Schulz has issued a statement saying, “we believe there are several hundred DACA students enrolled at WSU campuses in any given year. These young scholars are valued members of the Cougar family and we remain committed to supporting their dreams of a WSU education. The leadership of Washington’s higher education institutions joined me earlier today to forcefully proclaim our support of all of the state’s DACA students. More than 50 presidents of Washington colleges and universities signed a joint letter denouncing the decision to end DACA and calling on Congress to find a bipartisan legislative solution to this critical issue.”
