Rep. Capuano Statement on DACA Repeal

September 5, 2017

“President Trump’s decision to end DACA is shameful and disheartening. The young women and men who are being targeted now did nothing wrong and should not be forced to live in fear because of a decision their parents made. With today’s announcement, the administration is displaying a troubling lack of compassion for these young people, who are now at risk of losing so much. I am co-sponsoring legislation in Congress that would restore DACA and give these deserving young people a path to citizenship. Today’s announcement also highlights the long overdue need for comprehensive immigration reform."
