Southern Humboldt Unified School District Passes Resolution Encouraging Legislation Granting Amnesty for Those Who Immigrated Here Illegally as Children
The Southern Humboldt Unified School District’s Board of Trustees passed a Resolution last Thursday to encourage the California Congressional delegates to work with President Trump to enact legislation that would at the very least continue the DACA program. Included in this Resolution was providing every member of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate who represent California, Senate Majority and Minority Leaders, House Speaker, and the President of the United States with copies of the Resolution passed by SHUSD. The SHUSD recognizes that there are students in the District who are directly affected by the ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and maintains the directive of an education for all regardless of immigration status.

To Whom It May Concern,
The Southern Humboldt Board of Trustees has passed the attached Resolution regarding the ending of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in six months’ time and encourages Congress to take Action. We understand that a large majority of DACA recipients reside in California and we want to maintain that our schools provide an education for all students regardless of their immigration stat us . We would like to see the DACA program continue as a pathway to legal immigration for the students in our District. Please take this Resolution as our commitment to encourage all students to succeed and to take action in Congress to ensure these children who are not responsible for their parent’s choices are allowed to obtain an education. Plato said, “The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.” We value each student in our
School District and would be remiss if we did not fight for their future that started in our education system.
