Statement from Vanderbilt University regarding Supreme Court ruling on DACA

“We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision that the Trump Administration did not follow the proper administrative process in attempting to rescind DACA. We have always believed in the potential of these young student scholars, who have been raised and educated in the United States, to contribute to their communities and our national economy. It is unfathomable that we as a nation would deny these young people the ability to continue to reach their dreams in the only nation they’ve ever called home.

Despite this positive ruling from the Supreme Court, we know that it is critically important for Congress to find a permanent bipartisan solution for DACA students. We strongly urge lawmakers to take this next step.”
