Statement by Congressman Brian Higgins
"From day one, this Administration’s policy toward Dreamers, who have only ever known life in this country, has been cruel and heartless. So today’s decision by the Supreme Court to strike down President Trump’s unjustified action to overturn the Deferral Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is good news. The young people in the DACA program who have lived in fear that the President’s proposed action would force them further into the shadows can now breathe a sigh of relief. Our work is far from done, though, as we need to proceed toward comprehensive immigration reform for these young people, so that they may be able to fully participate in our society."
