Here’s a photo for the Inlander of Whitworth University students Catalina Corvalan, left, and Sara Trujillo, in Spokane, WA, who are both members of the Spokane Dream Project, which advocates for undocumented students. Corvalan is covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects some undocumented immigrants from deportation. President Trump recently ended the program and called on Congress to take legislative action. https://www.inlander.com/spokane/the-right-to-have-a-home/Content?oid=6002220
