UNC President Margaret Spellings Supports DREAMers

UNC President Margaret Spellings has made a national statement supporting “Dreamers,” students with temporarily protected immigration status, at a time President Donald Trump ramps up plans for enforcement and deportation.

In an op-ed published in The Washington Post on Tuesday, Spellings went to bat for students who are classified under the 2012 federal program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. That policy was enacted by former President Barack Obama, and it authorized temporary resident status to students and workers who were brought to the United States illegally as children.
