A statement on the Supreme Court’s DACA ruling

We are enormously pleased that the Supreme Court today has preserved the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a program that we have long supported and consistently advocated for. DACA students have had great success at Penn and have gone on to make invaluable contributions to our community and nation. We are proud to have them as students and alumni, and to support their aspirations to share in the American Dream. I am so pleased that this decision will relieve them of the burden of doubt that they have been forced to carry for the past few years. This is a great victory for human rights and for the future of America.
