49% OF UC STUDENTS ARE NON-CITIZENS? UC Says More Than 117K Have Received DACA Renewals

The UC System comprises the University of California schools known as UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Riverside, and UC San Diego.

It is the most prestigious group of State-funded Universities in California.

From NBC:
More than 117,000 people have received extensions so far this year through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to legally live and study in the U.S. following a lawsuit filed by the University of California last year, UC officials said. 
The renewals come after UC President Janet Napolitano sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in September 2017 after President Donald Trump's repeal of the DACA program. 
The suit claims that the repeal of the program violates students' rights. An injunction was granted by U.S. District Judge William Alsup on Jan. 9 that required the DHS to continue processing DACA renewal applications through the end of June as the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reviews the case. 
The DACA program allows immigrants brought to the country as children to become eligible for a work permit that is good for at least two years. The program does not provide a pathway for citizenship. 
UC officials said that between the date of Alsup's ruling and the end of June, the injunction has benefited 117,446 people who need the program to work or attend college in the U.S. 
The original lawsuit called Trump's repeal "nothing more than unreasoned executive whim." "Our efforts on behalf of our DACA students and the hundreds of thousands of other DACA recipients throughout the country are far from over," Napolitano said in a statement.
Here's a Screen Shot of the Google page showing the total number of students in the UC System:

Here is a Screen Showing showing more of the Google page.

Here is a link to the Google page today, July 10, 2018. (As I say, this information will likely disappear.)

The reason I am giving you Screen Shots is because I suspect that now that stat on the number of DACA students in the UC system has gotten out, and thus has a chance of becoming public knowledge, this information will be supressed.

They do not want you to know that fully 49% of students in the University of California system are not even citizens.

By the way, these 117,000 UC students who got DACA extensions do not likely equal the total number of UC students who are not citizens. I suspect there are many more who simply did not need DACA extensions at this time.


Here is another Screen Shot from  UniversityofCalifornia.edu:

Best as I can tell, these are numbers for 2017. The total number of students is significantly higher.

Also, here is a report from the same page on the total number of students who are non-citizens (again, I believe these numbers from 2017, and the total of non-citizens reported here is significantly lower):

So, which numbers are real?

I don't believe those numbers, but I posted the charts here anyway.

The reason I did this is

1) I would like the truth,


2) because if this story gets picked up by another blog, and the information gets out on a wider scale, the UC administration will fall back on these numbers to try to wheedle their way out of the mess they will have created for themselves by quoting the 117,000 DACA students number.

They will say the 117,000 number is a mistake.

But how would such a mistake happen? And is it really a mistake?


A friend emailed me to say he believes the 117,000 students is the number of students, NATIONALLY, who received DACA extensions, after Janet Napolitano brought suit.

That makes more sense.

I lived in a shed during for several months during college because I was destitute.



Toaster oven.

Electric blanket for winter.

Bathroom access in the owner's home.

And... I paid back my student loan.

I should have been DACA.

Follow the money. The 117,000 figure likely serves the purpose of taxpayers/fed$ funding DACA (lining the pockets of the corrupt)
Bookkeeping not likely to make it easy to discover how or under which category(ies)/identity(ies) this funding is managed

No wonder so many students whom I work with -- sterling students who should be accepted at every Ivy League to which they apply -- are turned down. My students are citizens of the United States.

And yes, I would assume this is true across the United States.

It's a national pandemic.

American citizens are being forced onto the road to serfdom.

Pisses me off! Big time!
