he United States is home to nearly two million DREAMers, undocumented immigrants under the age of 35 who arrived as children, seeking a pathway to citizenship. While Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), signed by President Obama, grants legal recognition and amnesty to some, their future is tenuous under the Trump administration.
Dr. Angela Chuan-Ru Chen is former Director of the Undocumented Student Program at UCLA and current Director of Pre-Health Dreamers, which supports undocumented students interested in health care careers.
Dr. Chen and moderator Ian S. Masters discuss ways to navigate the current immigration landscape, particularly how to advocate for support programs and undocumented student policies.
