Trustees pass important DACA resolution
September 18, 2017 |
Dear Legislators, Community Leaders, and Colleagues:
At its meeting of September 14, 2017, the San Diego Community College District Board of Trustees passed an important resolution.
The Board's resolution expresses disagreement and deep concern regarding President Trump's recent decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in six months, unless Congress enacts legislation to preserve it.
The resolution reaffirms the SDCCD's values and procedural support for all students, especially the DACA students. The resolution also urges Congress to extend the DACA program and make it permanent so that these deserving young people can realize their potential and achieve the bright future that they deserve.
Dr. Constance M. Carroll
San Diego Community College District
