Forum Issues Statement on DACA

The Forum on Education Abroad is deeply concerned about the proposed rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) order. Education abroad students who legally identified themselves as DACA expected certain legal protections, including the ability to return to the U.S. after studying abroad. The Forum encourages a swift legislative solution to keep the promises made to these students, so DACA students may fully access the benefits of education abroad.
