Message on the DACA Program
To: The Caltech Community
From: Thomas F. Rosenbaum, President
David A. Tirrell, Provost
Victoria D. Stratman, General Counsel
Date: April 12, 2018
In the absence of action by the legislative and executive branches of government, the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program lies with the courts. Caltech, along with sixteen peer institutions (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Emory, Georgetown, George Washington, Harvard, MIT, Northwestern, Stanford, Chicago, Penn, Vanderbilt, and Yale), filed a brief of amici curiae yesterday with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The brief makes a powerful statement about our shared core values and educational mission. It can be found online at http://bit.ly/brief_filed.
