SEATTLE (AP) — The president of Seattle University's student government, who was brought into the U.S. illegally as a child, is stepping down from his role in the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election.

Seattle University senior Carlos Rodriguez says President Donald Trump's inauguration, executive orders regarding immigration, the travel ban and the wall on the southern U.S. border have hit him all at once.

The Seattle Times reports Rodriguez will focus instead on helping other students without legal status find a way to attend college and, like him, become part of the Deferred Action for Early Childhood Arrival (DACA) program.

It's still unclear how the Trump administration will address students like Rodriguez who meet the provisions of DACA.

Rodriguez says his parents crossed the Texas-Mexican border 18 years ago in search of a better life for him and his brother.
