DACA Statement

September 5, 2017
Press Release

Today President Trump made clear what we already know: America's selective, haphazard approach to immigration is unsustainable and contrary to a society that values the rule of law.  With DACA facing serious legal challenges that would have likely forced the immediate termination of the program, the President's actions provide for a transition period and gives Congress a six-month window to achieve comprehensive immigration reform with a common sense, compassionate approach that is enforceable. Any comprehensive plan must include border security and enforcement of our visa program while not granting amnesty.
