Universities reaffirm support for undocumented students

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Numerous universities are issuing new statements in support of undocumented students in the wake of the Trump administration announcing that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, created five years ago by President Obama, would end in six months unless Congress takes action.

Many higher ed institutions had previously made moves to support undocumented students and the DACA program itself.

Here are some of the new statements.

See the USA Today story for the listing. The University of Minnesota and President Kaler's strong statement are included.
