President Trump announced this week that the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will end in six months.
Since 2012, DACA has provided deportation relief to undocumented youth who came to the country before the age of 16, as long as they met certain criteria.
NACAC was among several education organizations to speak out against Trump’s decision. In a statement released on Tuesday, the association said the move to eliminate DACA was a “regressive step that hurts many of America’s brightest, most vulnerable youth.”

Here are some ways you can help your colleagues and the impacted schools in Texas.
