“Students wanting to attend the college from abroad would have difficulty coming in. It also affects students that want to study outside the country or attend an educational function. They may fear not being able to come back.”

“I think the Travel Ban is just another way of scapegoating people. Creating enemies and fearing people for no justifiable reason. It would prevent international students that represent Cerritos College very well from coming to the school.”

“I think there would be a protest on campus. Also, some students are first generation born here and their parents might not have their visas so it will mess with their whole families.”

“I think that a lot of people would be upset, mainly the minorities and feel like it is an attack toward them. I think students would unite in protest to try and get their voices heard.”

“I am first generation here and it makes me mad the way President Trump has been running things. I just got back from Cancun on a trip with my family and my mom and her fiancé were detained for four hours because of the new regulations that are being enforced. It is going to limit the access that these first generation students will have to their culture, which will be horrible since your culture and where you come from is a big part of who you are.”

“A lot of people will be upset and probably a lot of students wont be able to come to college. Even people who aren’t immigrants will be upset and some students will have to go home.”
