Response to DACA: What can we do?

(09/21/17 8:24pm)

We were disheartened by President Trump’s decision to rescind the Obama administration’s immigration policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. We wish to express our strong, public support for and gratitude toward President David Leebron for his message to the Rice community. We stand with President Leebron in supporting our students, faculty and staff who may be personally impacted by the overturning of DACA, or who may be concerned about the well-being of family members or friends whose status in the U.S. is now in jeopardy. Dreamers should not have to live in constant fear of deportation, but should instead be allowed to continue working, studying and living in the United States — the country we all call home.
