AACTE Statement on President Trump’s Ruling on DACA

On September 6, AACTE President/CEO Lynn M. Gangone issued the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s ruling on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“The decision by President Trump yesterday to end the DACA policy leaves the plight of these individuals – who are integrated into our schools, our institutions of higher education, our workforce, and our communities – in the hands of the Congress.

DACA recipients deserve the assurance that the country that they call home wants them to stay and contribute to our society. Congress should act to move bipartisan legislation forward that gives these individuals and their families the security that they deserve. The clock is ticking, and time is short.”
