Pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly has made the unexpected decision to donate $500,000 to four organizations that provide college scholarships to DACA-covered immigrants in Indiana. This includes the Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance and the Indiana Latino Institute, both focusing on increasing educational and workforce opportunities for the immigrant population. Eli Lilly’s stated goal with this donation is to ‘remove barriers and create more equitable, affordable post-high school education opportunities for Indiana’s growing immigrant population.’ However, the decision has sparked controversy. Critics argue this move, while well-intended, could unintentionally sideline legal residents by focusing support on a specific demographic group, irrespective of their immigration status. They also express concerns about the possible implications this might have on wider immigration debates and the interpretation of the rule of law.
