I Stand with Undocumented People


To add your name to demonstrate your commitment to supporting undocumented people on the Central Coast, please use this online form: https://tinyurl.com/DefendDacaCP


September 5, 2017

We, the undersigned educators and community members based on the Central Coast, stand in solidarity with undocumented students, DACA recipients, and all undocumented people.

We urge President Trump to preserve DACA. Since June 2012, nearly 800,000 young people who came to the United States as children have come forward to the U.S. government, passed background checks, and received permission to live and work in the United States. With DACA, they have advanced their education, started small businesses, and more fully established themselves as integral members of our society. Ending DACA means that all of these young people would be at risk of deportation and separation from their families and our communities; this is senselessly cruel.

Instead of ending DACA, we encourage elected officials in Congress to enact legislation immediately that replaces fear and uncertainty with permanent protection for undocumented youth and urge President Trump to sign this bill.

We further urge President Trump to end efforts to target “sanctuary cities” and strongly encourage Congress to take action to enact comprehensive immigration reform that positively impacts all undocumented people in the United States.

To our undocumented students, their families, our students in mixed status families, and the broader undocumented community: we want you to know that we see you, we value you, and we are ready to defend you.

In Solidarity,
