BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Donald Trump’s promise to deport illegal immigrants has heightened fears amongst foreign students. That’s sparked a nationwide effort to make college campuses safe zones for undocumented students.
The sanctuary campus movement has spread to more than 100 schools across the country, including a few in Maryland.
Comments from the president-elect sparked fears.
“It’s scary. This whole situation has been very scary,” said Towson University student Maria Centeno.
Centeno was brought to the U.S. as a baby and worries everything she’s worked for could disappear.
“This is my home. My friends are here. I grew up here,” said Centeno.
