Statement on DACA from President Cervelli

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy has been beneficial to the United States and upholds the country's highest ideals of providing opportunity to those who dream of building a life for themselves here. The positive impact has been evident in higher education, where students here under DACA have developed their talents to become valuable contributors to their communities and to our nation. Saint Mary's supports continuing the DACA program to serve the best interests of the United States and the young people brought to this country as children who have made it their home.
