President Roberts joins national call for DACA legislation

President Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D., has joined more than 200 college and university leaders across the country to launch the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration. The Alliance is urging Congress to pass bipartisan legislation before January 19, 2018 to protect the young immigrants knows as Dreamers from deportation.

Alliance representatives issued a letter to Congressional leaders on January 11, in which they stated, “As leaders of institutions that play a vital role in unleashing human potential, strengthening and enriching local communities, and securing our nation’s well-being and prosperity, we take seriously our responsibility to address public policy issues that are inconsistent with our purposes and values as educational institutions, our commitment to our students, and our nation’s heritage as a land of opportunity for those who come to this country in search of a better life for themselves and their children.”

“Shoreline Community College offers steadfast support for all of our students, including undocumented and immigrant students. We stand by DACA recipients and remain committed to keeping our doors wide open to them, because we know that our quality of life in Washington improves when everyone has access to education,” said President Roberts.
