Representatives from the Saint Peter's University Undocumented Student Center Speak at Notre Dame School

Oct. 19, 2017 - On Tues., Oct. 17, Notre Dame School in New York, N.Y., hosted a school-wide assembly examining how the end of the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) will impact young adults who are undocumented and how the faithful are called to respond. 

Dr. Jennifer Ayala, director of The Undocumented Student Center at Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, gave the room an “undocumented quiz”- dispelling myths and clarifying facts about the DACA program and few paths to legal immigration that are presently available. A student from Saint Peter’s University boldly shared her own migration story, including the hardships she faced in leaving her home country, the struggles that faced her when she arrived in the U.S. and journey that led her to college. 

Nick Napolitano, assistant for social ministries for the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces of the Society of Jesus, offered the Notre Dame community opportunities to encounter, understand and act on behalf of immigrants and refugees, encouraging the community to join the Jesuit-sponsored Campaign for Hospitality.
