In the News: Ohio Universities write letter in support of BRIDGE Act

Presidents of Ohio’s public universities came together in December to draft and send a letter to their state representative Senator Brown. We are now in the second month of February, and our state, our university has showed no support for current or future legislation protecting the undocumented students of Virginia. Ohio, we see you. Where is Virginia?
“Many Ohio students are facing great difficulty because of the indeterminate status of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We stand in support of these students who arrived on our campuses believing in the promises made by the government of the United States of America.
The BRIDGE Act would provide these students with work authorization and a “provisional protected status” from deportation. It would help alleviate the immediate concerns regarding their status while the nation continues to pursue a long-term solution to immigration reform.”
