Comments Off on #DefendDACA and our Immigrant Communities

Dear LMSA Family,
Our fellow immigrant brothers, sisters, and families, are under threat again. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton along with attorney general from various other states sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the current administration calling for the end of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) by September 5thLMSA West is committed to fighting for the safety and stay of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in our country.
Below are some resources and things you can do to protect our families:

As we fight to protect DACA, we must not forget that there are many immigrants who are not protected under DACA who also need our support.

If you are an undocumented pre-health or health professional student, we want to hear from you! Please email us your story and a picture to be featured in our newsletter and LMSA West Facebook page. We can also feature your story anonymously. 
 
If you are interested in doing more policy work with LMSA West, join our Google Group.
In solidarity,
