ASHLAND, Ore. -- Southern Oregon University president, Linda Schott, joined the Presidents' Alliance on higher Education and Immigration, an organization that was started in late 2017. The alliance is made up of 150 university chancellors and presidents dedicated to increasing public understanding of how immigration policies and practices impact students, campuses and communities.

President Schott was visiting SOU's sister school in Mexico, Universidad de Guanajuato, in September when President Trump announced the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, known as DACA. He gave congress six months to create new guidelines for the program.

Now democrats are demanding a solution be included in the new budget.

Congress avoided a government shut-down just before Christmas by passing a temporary budget that will last into January. DACA is just one of the many issues that will be discussed for the new budget.

DACA enrollment will begin to expire this March, leaving 800,000 people subject to deportation. 

SOU says that they are working on a solution for their DACA students. If DACA is terminated then students in the program could potentially transfer to Universidad de Guanajuato to complete their degree.
