ACE, Higher Education Leaders Write House in Support of Immigration Reform

February 14, 2014

​ACE President Molly Corbett Broad and the leaders of 14 other higher education associations sent a letter Feb. 12 to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), and all Republican members of the House urging them to move forward on immigration reform.

The Senate voted last June to approve a plan to overhaul the nation's immigration system, a measure that contains a number of provisions strongly supported by the higher education community.

Republican leaders in Congress are once again talking about the issue, although whether and how to move forward is still a subject for debate.

House Republican leaders Jan. 30 released a one-page document entitled Standards for Immigration Reform that outlines their immigration platform, including support for addressing the plight of undocumented students brought to the United States as children.
