APC STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF DEFERRED ACTION FOR CHILDHOOD ARRIVALS (DACA)

The Academic Professionals of California (APC) stands in strong support of DACA and other programs that support our undocumented and other vulnerable student groups. These students, who have been raised and educated in the United States, are an integral part of our campuses and surrounding communities. The DACA program has not only benefited the students it was created to protect but our society as a whole. The students protected by DACA are an equal, vibrant component of the fabric of our society and represent the future of our communities. APC supports legislation that provides an efficient pathway towards citizenship. Dreamers deserve to be recognized, supported, and protected.
