TACAC's Statement on Trump Administration's Decision to End DACA

Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump Administration will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  TACAC supports the NACAC response:  https://www.nacacnet.org/news--publications/newsroom/nacac-statement-on-termination-of-daca-program/

The Administration decided to wait 6 months before completely ending the program to allow Congress to pass legislation addressing DACA recipients and other undocumented individuals.  TACAC encourages members to submit the action alert NACAC has created urging Congress to pass legislation to protect DACA students as soon as possible.  The alert can be found here:  http://cqrcengage.com/nacac/app/write-a-letter?4&engagementId=379893.
