As DACA Ends, Questions Arise For Journalism Students

Ever since the Trump administration’s announcement that it is ending the DACA program for immigrants brought to this country as children, questions have arisen for journalism students. They may be assigned to report on the decision while also being affected by DACA personally.

Karla Navarrete is an advanced bilingual reporting professor at the ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. She advises that students need to "cover their story with a fresh set of eyes almost like compartmentalizing their life, because they need to put on that journalist hat and cover the facts and what is being said and not put their heart first.”

Navarrete has taught DACA recipients previously, though she is unaware of how many students she currently has that are under the program.
