Supreme Court Ruling on DACA Debrief

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Dear Students and Allies,

On June 18, 2020, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to continue. The Court found that the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the program was “arbitrary and capricious” and failed to consider the hardship to DACA recipients. In this video, we discuss and clarify what the decision means, how it affects current beneficiaries and prospective applicants. We also recognize the long road and hard work that it took to get here on behalf of the community. Lastly, we share resources available to individuals of mixed-status, their families, and communities. We are here to stay! If you have any questions about this video, please contact us via email

Students experiencing increased distress can visit the University of Utah Counseling Center. They are offering support between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. by telephone and through secure video conference appointments. Students can also call 801-581-6826 to schedule an initial intake appointment or the 24-hour Crisis Line at 801-587-3000. More information about Counseling Center services may be found here.

Staff enrolled in the Employee Health Care Plan have access to counseling through the Employee Assistance Program.
