A workshop designed to teach students how to prevent deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was recently hosted by Ohio State University.
The training session -- led by the Central Ohio Worker Center in partnership with the Young Democratic Socialists of America – sought to teach "the best ways we can help prevent deportations, protect the undocumented workers in our community, and resist ICE," according to the groups' Facebook page.
"This is an opportunity for us to get involved in the immigrant’s struggle on campus," they said on Facebook.
Organizers chalked the campus with messages such as "Protect Immigrants," "Resist ICE" and "Protect Immigrants from ICE," prior to the event, The College Fix reports.
Ohio State University currently has nine different scholarships undocumented students can apply for to receive financial assistance.
Last October, Ohio State President Michael Drake joined nearly 800 other university presidents in signing a letter to Congress urging it to take action and permanently protect students enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to The Lantern student newspaper.
