Ball State University President Geoffrey Mearns released a statement Wednesday regarding President Trump’s decision to shut down the DACA program in six months, unless Congress intervenes.

Mearns wrote, quote, “Given President Trump’s decision regarding DACA, it is now imperative that all members of Congress work promptly with the administration to enact legislation that will provide a permanent, just, and constructive solution for the young people who were brought to the United States by their parents.”

Mearns joins the presidents of Indiana and Purdue universities in making statements regarding a possible DACA shut down.
