Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego), ranking member of the Higher Education Subcommittee, released the following statement on reports that the Trump Administration plans to sue colleges and universities over affirmative action.

“The last thing our colleges and universities need is to be inundated by legal attacks from the Trump Administration. These lawsuits will only force our places of higher learning to divert critical resources toward defending themselves in court and away from educating our children and preparing them to compete in the global economy.

“I urge the Department of Justice to abandon this reckless proposal that will only serve to hurt our students and higher education in America.”
