NASFAA Mention: DACA Students Left Out of the CARES Act

"Students who are undocumented may not be able to receive the emergency grant that is part of the $2 trillion coronavirus relief act. U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has said the aid will not go to undocumented students, even those who pay taxes or are under federal protection," Iowa State Daily reports. 

..."'The lengths this administration goes through to exclude DACA students ends up hurting a lot more [people],' said Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
