Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration announcing a wind down of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“Since 2012, nearly 800,000 young people who immigrated to this country have had the opportunity to go to school, gain employment, and continue on with their lives minus the fear of deportation. Today, the Trump Administration once again shows it has no dignity for our friends, neighbors, and colleagues. We must safeguard the livelihood of DREAMers and provide these inspiring young people and their courageous parents a pathway to citizenship.”
