Cal State Fullerton President Mildred García has joined nearly 800 college and university presidents across the country in urging Congress to pass legislation to protect beneficiaries of the DREAM Act.
The letter, sent by the American Council on Education to Reps. Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi, and Sens. Mitch McConnell and Charles Schumer, urged the legislative leaders to find a long-term legislative fix as soon as possible.
“Colleges and universities have seen these remarkable people up close, in our classrooms and as our colleagues and friends. Despite the challenges they face, they have made incredible contributions to our country and its economy and security. They should continue to be able to do so. If we are unable to protect these Dreamers, we will be shutting the door to an entire generation of individuals who seek to contribute their best to America.”
