Template State Delegation Letter for Higher Ed Institutions to Support DACA Recipients

The Presidents’ Alliance developed this template state delegation letter for institutions of higher education to adapt and send to congressional delegations in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients in response to the administration’s July 28, 2020, attempt to dismantle DACA in response to the June 18, 2020, Supreme Court decision holding that the initial rescission was unlawful. The template letter considers the current COVID-19 crisis and recent court decisions, highlights DACA and undocumented student demographics and economic contributions, shares qualitative data regarding DACA recipients, and provides specific recommendations for the congressional delegation to take. If you have questions on strategy, require additional support, or want to share your final letter so we can uplift, please email
