DACA Students Come Out of ShadowsDecember 16, 2016 |

The election of Donald Trump has immigrants across the United States rethinking how they talk about their legal status. A group of students gathered at Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus recently to publicly announce that they are undocumented on an event, which participants called “Coming Out of the Shadows.”
Fear is the common denominator among these PCC Rock Creek students, most of them in their early 20s. They are worried that the incoming president will fulfill his promise to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants within 18 months.
