In light of recent executive orders regarding immigrants and refugees, the ACLU of Utah has renewed our dedication to the civil rights of immigrants and refugees in our state. We have updated Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Resources. 

The ACLU has been one of the nation's leading advocates for the rights of immigrants, refugees, and non-citizens, challenging unconstitutional laws and practices and countering the myths upon which many of these laws are based. The fundamental constitutional protections of due process and equal protection embodied in our Constitution and Bill of Rights apply to every "person" and are not limited to citizens.

We will continue work to protect the civil liberties and civil rights of immigrants and to combat public and private discrimination. The ACLU is here to help defend rights at protests and in court and we won’t let the community be divided by dangerous and bigoted executive orders.
