The DACA program was launched in 2012 following an executive order issued by President Barack Obama to protect students who were brought into the country before reaching age 16. Many have cut back spending and say they'll have to borrow or dip into reserves to stay open.

"This current administration has intensified fears of being detained and deported among Latinos", said Oneida Vargas, a junior from Chicago studying political science. She said the governor's office wants to make sure everyone involved can take part in a signing ceremony.

Christopher Covelli said at a press conference before Rauner signed the Trust Act.

"Detentions could tear families apart and devastate communities", Tally said. Still, he said, the district is hopeful of a solution.

"Provides that a law enforcement agency or official shall not detain or continue to detain any individual exclusively on the basis of any immigration detainer or administrative warrant, or otherwise comply with an immigration detainer or administrative warrant after that individual becomes eligible for release from custody".

Vargas agreed, and said she hopes the new legislation will mark the end to "racial profiling" of Latinos in IL.
