UC System Helps Undocumented Students In Uncertain Times


Back in 2014, the University of California system did something extraordinary: It established a legal services center to meet the immigration-related needs of its students.

The UC Immigrant Legal Services Center is based at the UC Davis School of Law. It serves students throughout the system of UC schools.

Today, the L.A. Times reports, demand for the center's services are in high demand. Students who are unsure what to make of the president's stance on DACA, which seems to be in flux, can get advice and counsel. The center has been a "lifeline" for students during this time.

And the center doesn't just advise individual students - it holds know your rights workshops and briefs UC administrators about immigration issues. The center even shares materials with other educational institutions around the country.

Amazing work by a cutting-edge organization.
