The Department of Romance Languages opposes in the strongest terms the rescission of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We unequivocally and vehemently reject this new policy decision as a violation of human rights and affirm the right of all students to a safe, respectful, and inclusive working and learning environment in Romance Languages. We recognize that this policy decision may have a deeply traumatizing effect on many members of our community and their families, regardless of immigration status. We are especially committed to supporting our students who may be affected directly or indirectly by this policy decision.
For additional information on the UO’s support for DACA students, please visit the UO DREAMers Workgroup website.
