BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Following a landmark decision by the Supreme Court to reject President Donald Trump’s effort to end DACA, Cal State Bakersfield's President Lynette Zelezny released a message of support.

In her message, Zelezny states:

Today, I applaud the #SupremeCourt's decision on DACA. I am grateful that the highest court in the land has lived up to our country's highest ideals of compassion and inclusion, and we as #CSUB will to continue to advocate on behalf of equity and justice for all of our students, faculty and staff... We believe that access to higher education, as well as equity, diversity and inclusion, are the building blocks for progress and excellence in our region and world

Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by the court's four liberal judges sided in the opinion of the court.

“We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies,“ Roberts wrote. “We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action."
