NASSP Statement on Supreme Court DACA Ruling

Reston, VA—NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti issued the following statement on today’s DACA ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court:

The nation’s principals are relieved to see that Dreamers—many of whom are our students, parents, and teachers–will not be torn from the fabric of their school communities by an ill-conceived effort to rescind DACA. The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold DACA reflects the majority opinions of voters from both parties. But let’s remember that DACA is still just a stop-gap measure. We urge Congress to enact permanent legislation not just to protect DACA recipients and immigrant youth, but to establish a roadmap to citizenship for them.
