The University of Miami is prepared to reward students whose parents broke the law.
Starting in the Fall of 2018, the university will cover all of the expenses of DACA students from across the state of Florida, Naples News reported.
DACA, also known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, gives temporary protection to children who brought into America by their parents when they were children.
The school’s program, known as U Dreamers, currently only takes care of Dreamers, another name for DACA protected children, from Miami-Dade county.
The decision was made after the school received an “outpouring” of inquiries from across the state, Iris Florez, the assistant director of undergraduate admission at the University of Miami, told the News.
“They saw a light of hope,” Florez said.
Florez didn’t mention any American born children who might also need “a light of hope.”
The grant is designed to meet 100 percent of the DACA student’s needs, including tuition, health insurance and room and board.
“(Grant recipients) are very grateful and very excited to know they have the support of a university that stands behind them,” Florez told the News.
And if resources are available, Florez said the school wants to expand the program to illegals from around the United States.
We know there’s high achieving DACA students all over the U.S. who, unfortunately because of their circumstances, are not able to go onto college and get a degree,” she said.
According to Naples News, American citizen students owed a combined $1.34 trillion in student loans as of June 2017.
DACA students are not eligible for federal student loans though many states, including Florida, do offer in state tuition for Dreamers.
And now, thanks for the University of Florida, the children of illegal immigrants won’t know the burden of having to pay back those pesky student loans.
