DNC on SCOTUS Upholding DACA

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the Supreme Court struck down Trump’s decision to rescind DACA as “arbitrary and capricious”:

“Lady Liberty stands tall today. This is a stunning victory. A victory of humanity over hatred, of American values over Trump’s immigrant-bashing scare tactics. The Supreme Court saw through this administration’s lies and upheld DACA as the law of the land. This decision affirms what America should be: a land of freedom and opportunity, where those searching for a better life are welcomed with open arms, not forced into the shadows. DACA is critical to making sure hundreds of thousands of people can live, learn, and work in the only country they call home. These are our friends and neighbors, our classmates and coworkers. They are American in every way but on paper. And we’re going to make sure they’re here to stay by electing Joe Biden in November.”
