Members of the PCC community are fearful of being abducted from our collective home. These classmates who we sit next to, friends who we laugh with and staff members who we look to for help, are being threatened by a force that has the power to stalk, imprison, and exile. That force is the federal government under the Trump administration, a body which has variously proven it has no moral qualms about separating families.
In the wake of this year’s presidential election, immigration status is on the mind of many undocumented students here at PCC. Superintendent Vurdien, recognizing this apprehension, sent an email out to the PCC student body on Nov. 10 reaffirming the administration’s dedication to providing access to education to all of its students.
