Levin Statement on President Trump’s Decision to End DACA

Sep 5, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program within six months:

“President Trump’s decision is reprehensible.

“Instead of taking the lead and pledging to work with Congress to make sure that 800,000 young people can live out their dreams in the only nation they have really known, the President puts forth the whip of deportation.

“Congress must now work together and act because this not what America stands for, not only for 800,000 dreamers, but for all of us in America as each of us lives out our own dreams, as did those who came before us.”
