DACA Updates

CSU Joins Amicus Brief

On September 13, 2023, District Court Judge Hanen found the formal rule concerning DACA issued by the Biden administration in 2022 unlawful. The decision was appealed and is once again before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeal. The CSU joined the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, TheDream.US, and 167 other colleges and universities in filing an amicus brief in support of DACA.

As the nation’s largest and most diverse university in the United States, the CSU’s support for a clear path forward to ensure undocumented students and employees are able to achieve their educational goals and continue their careers has never wavered.

All CSU campuses have staff dedicated to assisting students who are undocumented and students from mixed-status families. In addition, employee assistance programs are available for employees. Students and employees needing assistance with any of the provisions above are encouraged to seek free direct legal assistance from providers located in the geographic region of their campus.

Detailed information about support services  at each CSU campus is available.

University leaders from the Chancellor's Office and all 23 campuses will continue to advocate with congressional representatives for a permanent solution to protect our Dreamers.
