Statement on DACA from the Division of Social Sciences

September 06, 2017

To: UC Santa Cruz Social Sciences Community

From: Dean Katharyne Mitchell

The Division of Social Sciences at UC Santa Cruz underscores our continuing support for DREAMers/DACAmented and their families. The recent decision by President Trump to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is an affront to the values of our division, our campus, and our nation. We strongly condemn this decision and want all those who are affected by it to know that we stand with you. We will do everything we can to protect you in the present and to work for long-term protections in the future. Our doors remain open; please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff.
