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).
