DNC on Trump’s Latest Attempt to End DACA
July 29, 2020
In response to the Trump administration refusing to accept new DACA applications and openly defying court orders, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“So much for Trump’s promise of ‘law and order.’ The Supreme Court saw through this administration’s lies last month when it ruled against Trump’s attempts to destroy DACA. Now Trump is defying court orders and violating the law of the land. Instead of focusing on saving lives and jobs in the middle of a pandemic and economic crisis, Trump is trying once more to upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of Dreamers. His cruelty and pettiness know no bounds.
“We have a message for this administration: Dreamers are here to stay. They will no longer be forced into the shadows and used as political pawns. These are our classmates and co-workers, our friends and neighbors. They are American in every way but on paper, and they deserve the chance to stay in the only country they call home.”
“Democrats will continue to stand with Dreamers in the fight against fear and hate. We’ve won this fight before and we’re going to do it again – in court and at the ballot box. The stakes of this election could not be higher. America needs compassionate leadership. We need Joe Biden.”
