A Message on DACA

School of Social Work students, faculty, and staff:

 

The School of Social Work stands with our students in the face of President Trump's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Any of our social work students feeling unsafe or experiencing distress can reach out to our social work advisors for support and resources. In addition, Chancellor Blank's public statement lists good university and community resources for DACA students and allies. We support our National Association of Social Workers (NASW), which strongly opposes President Trump’s decision to rescind the DACA program and will work with allied organizations and Congress to continue protections for these young immigrants. As a social work community, we have a responsibility to make sure that Congress is held accountable for swiftly developing an effective policy for DACA recipients that will avoid chaotic disorder in the lives of DACA recipients and their families, and that upholds the value and dignity of their previous and ongoing contributions to this country and world.
