For The Register-Guard

Sept. 13, 2017

Like many, we are reeling in the wake of the decision announced by the Trump administration to end the DACA program. This decision undermines the missions of our community colleges, universities and public schools, and will damage our local, state and national economies. For the past several years, the University of Oregon Dreamers Working Group has raised awareness on campus of the assets our undocumented students bring to the university, the unique challenges they face that are above and beyond the challenges of other college students, and to help staff and faculty throughout campus better understand how to respect and support our undocumented students. › Continue reading

No to the ending of DACA! CLLAS Statement 

No to the ending of DACA! CLLAS Statement 

In light of the recent decision from the Trump administration to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy, also known as DACA, CLLAS joins the multiple voices across the University of Oregon, our state, and the nation rejecting this decision. CLLAS urges the Trump administration and Congress to continue this important program. DACA has brought hundreds of thousands of people out of the shadows, giving them the opportunity to openly be productive members of our society. 

CLLAS remains firmly committed to all students at the University of Oregon, including those protected under DACA. CLLAS also expresses its solidarity to the families of all DACA students. 

 As we urge the Trump administration and Congress to continue the DACA program, we also invite all faculty, staff, students, and community members to familiarize themselves with the various available resources concerning DACA and related issues (please visit our Resources tab).

Michael Schill, UO President

September 5, 2017 – 9:42am

UO President Michael H. Schill sent the following message to the campus community Sept. 4 in anticipation of changes to federal immigration policy:

Members of the University of Oregon community,

President Trump this week is expected to make changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy, also known as DACA. I join hundreds of university leaders as well as local, state, federal, and business leaders in strongly urging President Trump to continue this program. I also write to let our students know that we support them, and to provide information about where our students and their families can go for assistance, should the need arise. 

In a world full of ambiguities, there is no ambiguity for me about the importance of continuing DACA. My view of morality dictates that young people, many of whom were brought here as infants or toddlers, must be allowed to remain in the United States to learn, work, and make a life for themselves. The United States is their home. To uproot them would be wrong. Period. › Continue reading
