Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham, will be featured in a discussion focused on Dreamers on Nov. 12 on WFUV (90.7 FM).
“DACA, Dreamers, & U.S. College Campuses” is part of Fordham Conversations, podcast series on WFUV hosted by Robin Shannon, the station’s assistant news and public affairs director and morning news anchor. Father McShane will discuss why supporting Dreamers is part of Catholic and Jesuit universities’ social justice mission.
After the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was repealed by the Trump administration this past October, the University organized a campuswide campaign in support of the DREAM Act— legislation would grant legal status to young immigrants who were brought to the country as minors.
Father McShane has previously released statements in support of the DREAM Act, and the University community has actively lobbied for its passage.
