Dear campus community,

We write to you today deeply concerned about recent reports of raids being planned by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to arrest undocumented individuals in Northern California. We know that this is causing a great deal of anxiety among people in our campus community who may be affected by these actions.

We will always stand in unwavering support for all of our students and colleagues, regardless of immigration status, and will work on several fronts to support them.
