Mizzou’s chancellor says the campus wants to stay in touch with students affected by President Trump’s DACA decision. Alexander Cartwright says the MU administration wants to help, but the future is unclear for the program protecting immigrants brought here as a child.
“I think in the near term we need to just stay close with the students, understand where they are right now, what’s changed in their status, what hasn’t changed,” Cartwright said. “As soon as we know more about where things are changing, then we’ll be able to work more closely with them.”
Cartwright and other UM system chancellors issued a statement Tuesday calling for a “compassionate solution” for immigrants affected by the decision to let the program expire.
