California is home to more than 270,000 undocumented students enrolled in public school, the largest number in the country. Anxiety levels of undocumented young people are growing due to the Trump administration’s promise to crack down on illegal immigration. In September, Trump announced that he would end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) protections this March unless Congress could come up with legislation he could stand behind.
A growing number of California educators are receiving training to become advocates for undocumented students. The aim is to provide resources, including the steps necessary to graduate high school, financial aid information and counseling.
