Letter From College and University Presidents Urging Congress to Take Action to Protect Dreamers

October 19, 2017

More than 800 college and university presidents and chancellors signed on to this letter sent to Senate and House leaders, urging Congress to pass legislation as soon as possible to permanently protect the Dreamers.

As the letter notes, there is widespread, bipartisan support across the country for the Dreamers, many of whom have status under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy that was rescinded by President Trump Sept. 5. The president set the end date for DACA at March 5, 2018, giving Congress six months to pass legislation to provide a permanent solution.​
