College Presidents United Against Phase Out

Community college presidents in  Massachusetts are reacting in advance to news that President Trump may  put a stop to a federal program granting protection to the children of  undocumented immigrants. 

 A statement issued Monday, which includes the  signatures of the presidents from Springfield  Technical Community College, Holyoke Community College and Greenfield  Community College, expresses support for the Deferred Action for  Childhood Arrivals program and says the colleges are committed to the  education of all students, regardless of immigration status.  

Trump is  expected to end the program, which was created by former President  Barack Obama in 2012, but not before issuing a six-month grace period in  order to allow Congress to act on the matter.
