Last week, President Donald Trump released an announcement concerning the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. News reports indicate that President Trump will put into motion a plan to end the DACA within six months. In light of this announcement, many have taken a stand against the termination of these programs. SXU’s President Laurie M. Joyner, Ph.D., made a statement last week in reaction to this hot-button issue.
Additionally, SXU’s Mission and Ministry’s Sister Carol Mucha, R.S.M., was quoted in the Saturday, September 9 issue of the Daily Southtown. In the article, Sr. Carol mentioned this act “represents a historic injustice and a violation of the human dignity of young people. It diminishes us all as a nation. We are not as we once were in welcoming people.”
