University of Maryland to offer new resources for undocumented students

The University of Maryland is taking new steps to coordinate services for undocumented immigrants who are enrolled at College Park.

Officials at U-Md. and many other colleges and universities have repeatedly expressed solidarity with these students since the presidential election. President Trump took a hard line against illegal immigration during his campaign, but he has recently suggested that he hopes to work out a solution for some who were young children when they arrived in the United States.

This week, U-Md. said it will assign a person on its staff to coordinate services for undocumented students as part of an “ongoing commitment” to them. University spokeswoman Katie Lawson said that the coordinator will “address the immediate needs” of those students and that “we will continue to assess the need for staff support moving forward.”

Exposing your children to undocumented diseases.

Why doesn't ICE open an office across the street??

I'm sure that they already have someone on staff to address this, some unlucky assistant dean that does what is ordered by the president. This announcement says that they'll not hire a person to devote all of their time to the issue, most likely because it's really not much of an issue.

12:37 that's what happens to the other students in YOUR children's classes. Oh wait I forgot, stupidity isn't a disease.

University of Maryland is going to lose money. They won't have any resources to help anyone. Serves them right.

Perhaps college would not be as expensive for American students if these funds were spent on American citizens.

Another publicly funded university whose funds can be reduced or halted by Trump. These people are dumber than clams.
