This bill targets undocumented students in our state (many of whom are ‘Dreamers’ and may be DACA recipients). America at its best is when we judge people based on their character and contribution, not their birthplace or background. Barring these students from attending universities in the states is cruel, discriminatory, and unnecessary.
