ASU President Michael Crow: School Supports DACA Students

President Donald Trump is facing increasing pressure from many groups as he weighs eliminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA, program.

Sunday, Arizona State University President Michael Crow sent a letter to students and faculty saying the school is committed to the success of all of it’s students and, in particular, students from high schools in Arizona.

He said DACA students at ASU have graduated from Arizona high schools and meet admission requirements.

Crow said the school’s mandate is to educate all Arizona students at a cost as close to free as possible regardless of their immigration status.
