Cosumnes River College is committed to supporting all students on campus.
We know some in our college community are feeling anxious about their future due to changes in the immigration policy and laws being considered at the national level. There have been and, increasingly, continue to be many reports in the news media, on television, and in social media about the detention and deportation of immigrants. While some of these stories have been verified; many have not.
Those of us in the CRC community want you, our students, to know that your safety is paramount to us and we will do everything we can to support you.
We are committed to ensuring that our undocumented, international, and DACA students can continue their studies without fear. This commitment extends to all of our students, regardless of political persuasion, ethnicity, age, sex, gender, disability, religion, sexual identity, nationality, or documentation status.
CRC wants students to know that there are resources available and that we support and stand with you. Please use the links on this webpage to learn more about the resources available to you, both on and off campus.
We stand with all our students and want to see each of you succeed!

ILRC’s Know Your Rights & What Immigrant Families Should Know. This link provides general information on both rights and how families can prepare.
The Red Cards were created to help people assert their rights and defend themselves against constitutional violations. CRC has ordered Red Cards for distribution and they are available at the following locations on campus; Counseling, Student Life & Leadership Center, and at the Vice President of Student Services office. All people in the United States, regardless of immigration status, have certain rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. Knowing and asserting rights can make a huge difference in many situations, such as when ICE agents try to enter an individuals home. Red cards provide critical information on how to assert these rights, along with an explanation to ICE agents that the individual is indeed asserting their rights.
We encourage you to see one of our counselors by calling our Counseling Center at (916) 691-7316. You may also visit our On-Campus Resource Listings and Off-Campus Resource Listings to find the support and help you may need.
