To assist in these efforts, the Roche Center TWIN-CS team is pleased to welcome former TWIN student Saul as the guest speaker for the February 27th webinar. Saul attended St. Matthew's School and is now a student at Brophy College Prep, both of which are in Phoenix. He is a DACA student himself, and will explain what this means for him on a daily basis and for his educational aspirations.
The need to understand what DACA means in practical terms is urgent, as it is estimated that nearly 1000 permits are expiring daily. March 5th had been a deadline for DACA recipients, but since the Supreme Court on Monday the 26th declined to take up the lawsuit over the future of the program, the recipients have won a temporary victory. This EdWeek post provides a thorough explanation of where things stand and how the legal case may evolve.
