DACA and Undocumented Students

 “We stand in support of the DACA program as a path to education for immigrants. The program has served Pace, our community, and our country well. We support immigrant students and their right to achieve their dreams and be a part of the next generation of leaders.” —President Krislov, 2019 message to the Pace Community

What is DACA?

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was established in 2012 by President Barack Obama. DACA allows undocumented individuals who entered the United States as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of “deferred action” or protection from deportation.
