American citizens, not so much.

HARTFORD — The president of Connecticut’s State Colleges and Universities System reaffirmed the school system’s commitment to all students, whether or not they’re undocumented.

The statement, issued by CSCU President Mark E. Ojakian, stopped short of declaring the 17 schools as “sanctuary” campuses, but assured its small number of undocumented students that they would be supported despite the nation’s current political climate.

“We have their back,” said Maribel La Luz, spokesperson for CSCU. “We’re going to wait and see what happens, and at this point (students) need to just be worried about their exams.”

UConn, the only public school in the state not part of the CSCU program, recently announced a similar plan.
