The Associated Students Student Government’s (ASSG) Financial Affairs Committee says it has allocated funds to assist students seeking to renew their Deferred Action Childhood Arrival (DACA) status before the October 5 deadline.

The announcement comes almost a month after the September 5 decision made by the Trump administration to wind down the DACA program with a six-month grace period so Congress may replace it.
