Larson Applauds Supreme Court Decision on DACA
Hartford, CT – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) applauded the Supreme Court’s decision to block President Trump’s attempts to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
“The Supreme Court’s ruling provides enormous relief to the thousands of DREAMers in the United States. I commend the Chief Justice and the Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law. DREAMers are Americans. They grew up here and this is their home. Instead of supporting them and creating a path towards citizenship, President Trump tried to strip almost 650,000 young people of their legal status. The House-passed American Dream and Promise Act offers a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients. It’s time for the Senate to do its job and make this dream a reality.”
