The Associate of Universities Entrusted to the Society of Jesus in Latin America (AUSJAL) and the Jesuit University System (SUJ) in Mexico have released a statement in support of the immigrant population in the United States, and in particular undocumented students at the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States whose education may be threatened by the recent DACA recision.
The statement explicitly rejects policies which “exclude” people and notes that the current political landscape requires institutions of higher education to promote a culture of “global citizenship.”
AUSJAL is comprised of thirty Jesuit universities, colleges, and academic institutes in fourteen different countries in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean. SUJ is comprised of seven universities located across the country of Mexico, which are part of AUSJAL.
