Harvard hosts ‘UndocuGraduation’ for students in the country illegally
A pro-immigrant group at Harvard University recently hosted a graduation ceremony for students in the country illegally, an event meant to “highlight the struggles and the ways in which undocumented students persevere on this campus.”
The May 8 ceremony was hosted by the student group Act on a Dream. That group touts itself as “a student-led, student-run organization at Harvard College focused on supporting and advocating for the immigrant community on campus and beyond.”
The inaugural event featured “more than 50 students, faculty, staff, and administrators,” including a history professor who was arrested several years ago while protesting the Trump administration’s immigration policies, the Harvard Crimson campus newspaper reports.
Harvard’s media relations office did not respond to queries from The College Fix asking about the event. The Fix sought to learn exactly how many graduating seniors attended the event, as well as how many of them were beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which offers a temporary stay of enforcement of immigration law for younger unauthorized immigrants.
On Facebook, Act on a Dream stated the event aimed to celebrate those who are “undocumented, from a mixed-status family, or otherwise connect[ed] with the larger immigrant community.”
