Tune in for a Twitter Chat on Tuesday February 5th at 12PST on deportation as an educational policy issue with Genevieve Negrón-Gonzales, Leisette Rodriguez, and Carolina Valdivia! Dr. Negrón-Gonzales will be discussing her new research brief “Deportation as Educational Policy: How We can Fight Back & Why We Must” published by UndocuScholars. Follow the conversation at #undocedu.
“Immigrant detention and deportation has commanded much of the national attention around the Trump administration’s immigration policy, though conversations about undocumented college students have often failed to fully engage this broader context. If higher education scholars and advocates are serious about supporting undocumented young people, we must be active in the fight against deportations. This twitter chat will bring together scholars and practitioners to discuss how deportation shapes the educational experiences of undocumented young people in higher education.”
