The UTSA Dreamers Resource Center reaffirms its commitment to UTSA Dreamers and their families
We wanted to share an update with you in light of recent news from the White House suggesting that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may be increasing its activity in upcoming days or weeks. As valued members of the UTSA family, we want you to know that the UTSA Dreamers Resource Center is remaining vigilant of the situation and is in close contact with community partners.
Recently, we hosted several ‘Know Your Rights’ (KYR) training sessions. We also hosted Dreamer Ally training and welcomed 10 new allies to our growing UTSA Dreamer Ally family.
We encourage you to stay safe this holiday weekend. Enjoy your time with friends and family while being mindful of local and state laws. Also, be aware of your rights. Below, you will find some helpful reminders about the rights granted to every individual living in the United States.
- American Civil Liberties Union - Know Your Rights
- City of San Antonio Immigrant Legal and Support Services
- Informed Immigrant – Steps to Take to Prepare Your Family
- Refugee & Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)
- San Antonio Directory for Immigrant Students and Families
I want to underscore that the UTSA Dreamers Resource Center is here to support you throughout your academic journey. This includes advocating for your rights while keeping you up-to-date on immigration news, changes in policy, and campus and community resources.
If you or someone you know is impacted in any capacity by the proposed increase in ICE activity, please reach out to us at 210-458-7777 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and walk-ins are always welcome.
We value you, and we are here to support you.
