This article covers how undocumented students and their families are in the crossfire as the Trump administration has taken an aggressive stance to criminalize, deport, and degrade them. Through the testimonios of three undocumented immigrant college students and graduates, this article sheds light on their memorable moments in high school and college to extract lessons for K–12 and higher education educators. The lessons include how to prepare teachers to make immigrants and current immigration issues visible in the curriculum, ways to create safe spaces for undocumented students to be understood and advocate for themselves, and the critical role of counselors in determining students’ college-going futures.
