Ithaca College signs amicus brief in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients as DACA heads to the Supreme Court.

On October 4, Ithaca College joined 164 colleges and universities from across the country in signing an amicus brief supporting the roughly 700,000 young immigrants who came to the United States as children and who hold Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

This “friend of the court” brief was coordinated by the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, of which IC President Shirley M. Collado is a founding member. This group of higher education leaders is dedicated to improving how colleges and universities address immigration-related matters affecting their campuses. The case will go before the Supreme Court on November 12, and the court will decide whether the rescission of DACA was lawful.
