SACRAMENTO, Calif. The Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCC) has issued the following statement on the additional resources approved by the Legislature in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program and California Dream Act recipients:

FACCC applauds Governor Brown, Assembly Speaker Rendon, and Senate President pro Tem Kevin de LeA?n for their leadership and decisive action in support of our DACA students. The California Community Colleges have benefitted for over a decade from the presence of students who qualify for AB 540 status, and more recently under the California Dream Act and DACA. The Trump Administrations recent decision to rescind the DACA program is both cruel and short-sighted and we urge Congress to follow California’s lead and immediately act to protect the status of these young men and women. Today’s actions send a clear message that California’s Dreamers remain welcome in our state and at our community colleges.

The respective Assembly and Senate Budget Committees passed budget trailer bills containing $20,000,000 in additional funds for immigration services for DACA recipients and increased financial aid for the California DREAM Program by $10,000,000, with the largest portion, $7,000,000, dedicated for California Community College students.
