• Tell Texas Legislators: Keep In-State Tuition!
    If anti-immigrant Texas legislators get their way, I won’t be able to complete my education. My name is Maria Gonzalez-Treviño, and I am an undocumented honors student attending the University of Houston. I hope to obtain my bachelor’s degree in Political Science by May 2018 and my ultimate dream is to go to law school and become an immigration attorney to help immigrants in my community. Unfortunately for me and thousands of students across Texas, our dreams might be crushed by the end of the legislative session. I will fight against these bills and similar ones because I see many other undocumented students’ stories as a reflection of my own. Let’s be clear; these bills are an attack on our ability to pay the in-state tuition rate at Texas colleges. As a first generation college student, I struggled to adapt to the college environment. Doubling or tripling tuition fees would only make college even more inaccessible for many of us. Everyone should have access to an education regardless of their skin color, religious beliefs or immigration status. We have the power to make sure that undocumented students like myself keep dreaming and achieving their educational and professional aspirations. If enough Texans sign this petition and share our stories, Texas legislators will see that we mean business when it comes to protecting everyone’s right to an education, allowing undocumented students to pay in-state tuition, and protecting educational equity. The more we speak up, the more pressure they will feel to stop playing political games with our education. Don’t they know by now? You don’t mess with Texas Dreamers.

  • Make Desert Hot Springs a Sanctuary for Immigrants!
    Across the country, many are calling for their universities to become sanctuary campuses. The model is the “sanctuary city,” like Austin, New York City, Chicago and dozens of other municipalities, which have declared their intention not to cooperate with federal officials seeking to deport residents simply because they lack appropriate immigration documentation. At this moment, when there is a rising national rhetoric of intolerance and acts of hate that threaten people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ individuals, Jews, women, and immigrants, among others, we strongly affirm our protection of these groups, and we affirm our intention to support all students in their quest to pursue their education without government interference.
