Sept. 6, 2017 -- “Yesterday’s announcement by the Trump Administration removing protections from deportation for people brought to the United States by their parents is troubling on many levels. It will be harmful to law enforcement by discouraging immigrants from reporting threats to public safety out of fear of deportation. I have created an Office of Immigrant Affairs to address this very issue in order to protect our immigrant communities. Most DACA arrivals are law abiding hard working individuals. Penalizing them is inconsistent with our core values as Americans. I urge Congress to take up remedial legislation immediately and pass the Dream Act so these young people can continue to be productive members of society and enjoy the full benefits of American citizenship which they so richly deserve.”
