ATD Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision Regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program

Today’s Supreme Court decision on the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is a victory for hundreds of thousands of Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. More than 450,000 of the 700,000 Dreamers are college students who are serving their communities in countless ways. Many are now on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response, as essential workers. Thousands of graduates are among the 29,000 health care workers responding to this pandemic. Dreamers are an essential part of the community college story – and today’s decision is an important step in the right direction. Achieving the Dream looks forward to working with colleague members of the Washington Higher Education Secretariat to advance a permanent solution that will allow Dreamers to continue their education, contribute to our society, and have their shot at the American dream.
