Lewis University Continues Support for DACA Recipients

Published: July 26, 2021.

Lewis University remains committed to and supports DREAMers including those that are recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program.

The DACA program provides legal protection and work authorization for hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, including large numbers of college students. DACA has positively affected the lives of more than 800,000 DREAMers by making a college degree accessible.

Many members of the Lewis University community are deeply concerned about the July 16, 2021 ruling made by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas declaring DACA unlawful. For now, Lewis University recognizes that the ruling protects the status of all current DACA recipients, but may affect new DACA applicants. It expects and supports an appeal to strike down the ruling.  

Lewis University welcomes students regardless of immigration status and maintains the privacy of our students while abiding by the law. It also joins other universities across the country in supporting federal legislation that creates a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers.
