    President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to end the so-called "Dreamers" programme, which gives temporary protection to young people who came to the US with their parents.

    But even if they stay, Dreamers are ineligible for the loans many of them need to attend college.

    Now some states are helping them with that.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New Jersey.
