WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that President Trump will terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative:
“When President Obama established DACA in 2012, the program created a ray of hope for those who were brought to the United States as young children and they are Americans in every way except on paper. President Trump’s decision today to terminate this program diminishes that hope for the bright young DREAMers who now call America home.
“Over 787,000 individuals have received relief from deportation under the DACA program, allowing them to obtain work permits, pursue higher education, obtain driver’s licenses, and contribute their talents to our nation. These children put their faith in our government when they chose to come out of the shadows and I will fight with all that I have to ensure Congress passes legislation to overrule the President’s irresponsible action and ensure that these children can remain in the only country they have ever known.”
