Hispanic students express fear, uncertainty in wake of immigration clampdown

Countless immigrants across the country and here in western Oregon live in a climate of fear sparked by actions in the new administration, including President Donald Trump’s plan to build a U.S.-Mexico wall, his executive order on immigration enforcement and a number of highly public raids.

Community best part of Holy Cross speech team
