The election of Donald Trump as president is causing anxiety across college campuses for immigrant students who are protected by a federal program from deportation, prompting student and administration activism nationwide.
Trump said during his campaign that he would repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows immigrants who arrived in the United States as children to work and study in the country. He also has advocated for building a wall on the United States and Mexico border and deporting millions of immigrants without documentation.
