Editorial Featured in the Register Guard

INTL’s Professor Kristin Yarris, along with Professor Ellen McWhirter and Professor Michelle McKinley, co-wrote an editorial featured by the Register Guard on September 13, 2017. The article, “UO committed to keeping promise to Dreamers,” echoes support for the statement released by President Schill, explains who is covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (better known as DACA), and strongly argues for “Congress to act immediately to undo President Trump’s action and pass comprehensive immigration reform.” All of the authors are members of the UO Dreamers Working Group, “a collective of staff and faculty with a shared mission to foster the unique gifts and talents of Dreamer students, and promote their sense of belonging and safety as they pursue their higher education goals.”
