NALP Statement on Trump Administration Decision to End DACA
September 5, 2017
With the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the Trump Administration has crushed the dreams of a million young people, their families and their communities.
Termination of the DACA program is a betrayal to the fundamental American ideals that our nation has upheld for generations. Sadly, it is consistent with the administration’s repeated pandering to white supremacists and racists. Real leadership requires standing up to hate and xenophobia and defending the rights of all Americans, rather than a select few.
Leaders in the NALP community will keep fighting for and with DREAMers, who have courageously helped build this country, the only place they have called home.
