Statement from Chancellor Blank in response to U.S. Supreme Court ruling on DACA
Chancellor Rebecca Blank released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:
“Today’s court ruling is a positive step for the talented, passionate and motivated young people here at UW–Madison and around the country who want to continue to make meaningful contributions to our country. While it is a welcome step, it remains important for Congress and the President to come together and provide a process for these young people to lawfully remain in the United States. We know a vast majority of Americans support Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
“Individuals who are participants in DACA, undocumented or from mixed status families are important members of our UW–Madison community. I will continue to advocate for them, including through national higher education organizations such as the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities.
