Chancellor Rebecca Blank announced the University of Wisconsin’s continued support for undocumented students in a tweet Monday afternoon.

Blank, along with more than 180 leaders of other universities, signed a statement calling on the U.S. to continue supporting theĀ Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects approved undocumented children from deportation.

The statement contends that students benefiting from DACA have performed well both as students and as community members and calls the programs continuation “a moral imperative.”

The statement comes amid growing concerns that President-elect Donald Trump will pursue hard-line policies against undocumented immigrants.
