Support access to State Financial Aid for all NJ Residents
It's time for New Jersey to stand up to defend immigrant students. Last month, the Trump Administration ended DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) which puts nearly a million young people who call the United States home at risk of deportation across the country. In New Jersey there are 22,000 DACA youth and 71,000 DACA eligible youth - many of whom are students - scrambling, wondering what the decision means for their family and their futures. Now is the time for New Jersey to stand against hate and fear and protect DREAMers. New Jersey has the opportunity to pass legislation to provide ALL students, regardless of their immigration status, with access to state financial aid. The cost of college is high enough. All students that call New Jersey home should be able to seek aid to attend college. SIGN ON to support New Jersey Senate and Assembly bills S1458/A1650 and demand that New Jersey not turn its back on its young people, our economy, and our future.
