Senator Janet Nguyen issues statement on the DACA Program

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Senator Janet Nguyen issues the following statement following today’s announcement that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program will be phased out: 

"I urge Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to enact a federal law that will end the uncertainty and protect the young men and women who were brought to America as minor children and, through no fault of their own, lack proper documentation. These “dreamers” who have not committed crimes and who are working or going to school, are valuable members of our community. They serve in our armed forces, pay taxes and contribute to our economy."
