Congressman Calls for Passage of Dream Act
Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Member Doyle released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s announcement that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would be ended in six months:
“I am deeply disappointed in the President’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
“I believe that DACA was a reasonable and compassionate way to deal with undocumented young people who came to this country as children and grew up here. They did nothing wrong, and many of them know no other home.
“The President’s action today is extremely reckless and puts hundreds of thousands of people at risk. This action will have a profoundly negative effect on these young people’s lives, our communities, and the economy.
“I will certainly do all that I can to protect DACA and the DREAMers who call our country home. Congress should pass the Dream Act immediately.”
