Legal or Not.

Statement of AJCU Presidents on Undocumented Students

As Presidents of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities we feel spiritually and morally compelled to raise a collective voice confirming our values and commitments as Americans and educators. We represent colleges and universities from across our nation with more than 215,000 students and 21,000 faculty, and over 2 million living alumni.
Grounded in our Catholic and Jesuit mission, we are guided by our commitment to uphold the dignity of every person, to work for the common good of our nation, and to promote a living faith that works for justice. We see our work of teaching, scholarship and the formation of minds and spirits as a sacred trust.

That trust prompts us to labor for solidarity among all people, and especially with and for the poor and marginalized of our society. That trust calls us to embrace the entire human family, regardless of their immigration status (1) or religious allegiance. And experience has shown us that our communities are immeasurably enriched by the presence, intelligence, and committed contributions of undocumented students, as well as of faculty and staff of every color and from every faith tradition.
    Therefore, we will continue working:
 
•    To protect to the fullest extent of the law undocumented students on our campuses;
•    To promote retention of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA);
•    To support and stand with our students, faculty and staff regardless of their faith traditions;
•    To preserve the religious freedoms on which our nation was founded

... At Xavier, Father Michael Graham, president, signed onto a letter by the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities affirming its commitment to protect, to the fullest extent, undocumented students.
Graham sent out a campus-wide email two weeks ago stating that he and the university stand with students who may be affected by the Trump administration’s recent executive order limiting immigration and travel to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
The order has since been halted by federal courts.
May Lee Moua-Vue, the assistant director for International Student and Scholar Services at the Center for International Education, said that the university has made public its stance on undocumented students.
“Like many other Canadian and American universities, our community has pledged to be very welcoming to students of all statuses, legal or not.”
She mentioned, however, that there is still work to be done.
“We are very behind,” Moua- Vue said. “There is a gap in that knowledge and service here. At Marquette University, they have a dedicated staff that serves students who are undocumented. Knowing that they are also a Jesuit institution, we will be able to see if we can imitate any of that here.”
