I have an already-lengthy Best Resources For Learning About President Trump’s Executive Orders On Immigration & Refugees, but the policies announced today are worthy of their own “Best” list.
One of my previous posts, Immigration Fears Appear To Become Reality, contains several links to legal advice for teachers, students, and their families about how to respond to ICE raids. These new policies will certainly increase the levels of fear and stress among many of our students. As The New Yorker article, in particular, points out, another effect is likely to be undocumented parents not accessing services they and/or their children are entitled to out of fear.
Here are useful articles to learn about today’s announcement:

New Trump Deportation Rules Allow Far More Expulsions is from The New York Times, and has a link to a Spanish-language version.
