With President Trump expected to announce an end to an Obama-era policy that put off deportation of undocumented immigrants brought to the county as children, the presidents of Massachusetts community colleges and the head of Boston Public Schools on Monday issued a statement declaring their opposition.
The statement expresses support for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, and expresses commitment to the education of all students regardless of immigration status.
