Undocumented immigrant children who were sheltered from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are now facing issues with the new president in tow.
The New York Times reported on one student, Mitzie Perez, who sued Wells Fargo when they denied her for a student loan, claiming that it was illegal to deny someone a loan due to their immigration status. This is one of the first lawsuits to arise that challenges policies that make it difficult for undocumented students to receive financing for higher education.
Maybe next time you think about your student loans with grief, you’ll instead feel gratitude.
