The Trump Administration’s dececion to rescind DACA brought swift reaction from across the country.

John Jerry Johnson
-it’s sad for dreamers, they are hard working, they go to school, they pay taxes, social security and serve the military.

Scott Burns
-okay, send them back to their country they don’t even know the language.

Mark Zuckerberg
-it’s particularly wrong to offer young people the American dream, encourage them to come out of shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it .

Lauren , am a dreamer, I am not a criminal, I am Mexican, I am not a rapist.

Former president Barack Obama states we are talking about young adults that grew up he US, attended our schools and may not know anything but this country, may not know any language but English.

“Brought by parents, these children had no choice in coming here. Now they’ll be sent to countries they’ve never known. Cruel. Not America”

The El Popo Newspaper was first published in 1970 by students concerned about the lack of a Chicana and Chicano perspective in newspapers. As a result, students called the newspaper, El Popo. The paper was named El Popo after the volcano El Popocatepetl. Involved in Chicana/o Movement of the 60’s and 70’s, students saw a connection between the smoke spewing volcano ready to erupt and the student movement ready to engage. Thus, throughout the El Popo’s forty-six years, the name continues to symbolize and to represent the spirit of each generation of students that contribute to the pages of the El Popo Newspaper.
