Rep. Demings on DACA Decision
ORLANDO, FL – Rep. Demings gave the following comment after the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was arbitrary and capricious.
Said Rep. Demings, “The Dream is alive! Our Dreamers are American in every way except a piece of paper. They are our neighbors, our friends, our first responders, and so much more. They are us. The American Dream means that if you play by the rules and work hard, you can make it in America, and I’m thrilled to see the Supreme Court agree.
“It is now official: the Trump Administration attacked a group of people who they felt were ‘lesser.’ It was cruel, it was arbitrary, and it violated basic principles of human decency. I am sure that the Trump Administration will continue to attack these upstanding young people, but millions of others will be standing shoulder to shoulder to protect them, and to protect the American Dream.”
