See what the Athens community is saying about the Trump administration's plans to end DACA.

Ohio University President Duane Nellis recently pledged to fight the Trump administration’s recent announcement that it is ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. He said he’ll lobby members of Congress in person to protect Ohio U students who are affected by DACA.

Here’s what people in Athens have to say about the controversial comments by Trump’s administration and DACA protections.

Some think DACA has to be changed before it’s passed by Congress.

But many in the Ohio U and Athens community have spoken out against the announcement.

Others mentioned elected officials and urged them to support DACA.

Gov. John Kasich tweeted his appearance on CBS This Morning, where he opposed the Trump administration’s plan to rescind DACA protections.

But some stood up for Trump, tweeting their support for his decision.

One man expressed his doubt that Congress could take on DACA along with other pressing issues.

And an Ohio U student called out “Beckies” — a slang term used to describe white people who are ignorant or uncaring about racial issues.
