President Trump has introduced numerous immigration policy changes that have triggered widespread anxiety and confusion for many members of the UCLA community. These changes include ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, along with multiple Executive Orders centered on immigration enforcement, all of which may impact international students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  In light of these developments, EDI has created this centralized location with links to content that will hopefully answer many pressing questions.

We will update this page as new content becomes available. If you know of a valuable resource that we’ve overlooked, please let us know at (please include “Immigration Policy Resources” in the email’s subject line).

The University of California has also created a systemwide page with additional resources on immigration policy.
