Congressman Joaquin Castro says Congress Must Act on DACA, 9-6

Yesterday, the Trump administration announced its intention to rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, a program that protects immigrants who entered the country as children from being deported.

These DACA recipients are good, hardworking Americans in every way but on paper, and to strip them of this legal protection betrays the values of our nation.

Over the last five years, many members of Congress have asserted that DACA should have been done legislatively rather than through executive order. Now is their chance to make that a reality. Tell Congress to pass DACA Legislation.
