DREAMers and UndocuALLY
Foothill College Supports our Dreamers
Response to Oct. 5, 2022 DACA Ruling
Despite the fact that an October 5 Federal Court of Appeals decision ruled that the DACA program violates federal law, Foothill College will continue to serve and support our undocumented and DACA students.
Please note, the court’s decision does not impact a student’s AB 540 status and allows DACA recipients to retain their status and even apply to extend their DACA status as is currently allowed for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, it has been stated by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas that "as a result of the stay that remains in place, no one who currently has DACA will lose their protection from removal or work authorization."
Daisy Gonzalez, Interim Chancellor of California Community Colleges, declared that community colleges will continue to work to ensure undocumented students are supported on our campuses. Foothill College wholeheartedly supports Interim Chancellor Gonzalez’ statement.
Read the Foothill-De Anza Statement on DACA Ruling from Foothill-De Anza Community College District Chancellor Judy Miner; De Anza College President Lloyd Holmes; and Foothill College Interim President Bernadine Chuck Fong.
