Chancellor Damphousse Responds to DACA Decision

09/05/2017

JONESBORO – In response to the Trump Administration's announcement today regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy, Arkansas State University Chancellor Kelly Damphousse released the following statement to students, faculty and staff:

"Today’s news about President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy is not a surprise to the leadership of Arkansas State University. In the days leading up to the announcement, we have reached out to our A-State DACA students to reassure them that that we include them in the concept that Every Red Wolf Counts.

"As I meet with them, I am saddened to see how this policy shift dramatically affects the lives of these students. In the days and weeks to come, we will continue to work with our DACA students to ensure that they have all of the information that they need to plan accordingly.

"Like all of our students, my first priority for DACA students is that they feel safe, that they are heard, and that their studies are not disrupted by external concerns. I remain committed to supporting all of our students, including our DACA students, to the extent that federal and state laws permit. I have asked Dr. Thilla Sivakumaran, the Executive Director of Global Initiatives, to serve as our lead contact for any A-State students who have questions about how the policy change affects their status."
