Matsui Statement on the Trump Administration's Decision to End DACA

Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with a six-month delay: “The story of our country’s progress is inseparably linked to the contributions of millions of immigrants from all over the world. The hard work, ambition, and hope that people have brought to America has propelled us forward since our founding. “Today, by heartlessly denying young DREAMers, the President has turned his back on who we are as a nation. Democrats continue to stand ready in Congress to protect DREAMers and stop President Trump from ripping families apart and denying people opportunities to contribute to our country.”
