The “DACA Decision Campus Action Plan” Template was developed as there is a strong likelihood that DACA’s rescindment will be affirmed by the Supreme Court – immediately impacting students and employees.
It is anticipated that the Court will likely issue its decision sometime between now and June 2020, with a likelihood of an announcement coming soon. The justices could potentially declare that DACA is unlawful as the Supreme Court's conservative majority signaled in November 2019 their likely decision will end the DACA program.
In anticipation of the imminent decision, we are working collaboratively to prepare a plan of action template that can be implemented in phases, with the goal to be ready prior to the announcement with the most urgent plans of action.
As the nation awaits the Supreme Court ruling on DACA, the lives of many undocumented students, employees and their collective families are in limbo. These individuals are a vital part of our community through their scholarship, labor, and their civic and cultural contributions to our state through their presence and vitality. We urge campus administrators to enhance the ways in which they serve, support, and uphold the rights for undocumented students and undocumented employees in preparation for the DACA Supreme Court decision.
We are sharing this information as a toolkit for your campus or department to build upon.
