On Monday, September 4, 2017, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell released the following statement on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA)

"The reports that President Trump will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, or DACA, are heartbreaking for the individuals who came to this country as children and for the businesses, universities and communities that benefit from their contributions every day.    

"These young people were brought here through no fault of their own. America is their home and DACA has allowed them to become hardworking, contributing members of our society – offering their talents to the workforce and paying taxes that go toward improving our health care, infrastructure and other critical services. Regardless of whether they earn a college degree, work on a farm or in a restaurant, or are raising a family, they deserve the opportunity to apply for permanent resident status, and ultimately citizenship, and not be ripped from their families and the lives they know.

"In light of these reports, Congress must come together with businesses, universities, and lawmakers of both parties to protect these individuals. This is not only the right thing for these young people, but for our country and our economic competitiveness – now and in the future."


  1. Wow, does it ever touch my heart! I simply can't believe that this thing is going to end that easily! Our country is not like that! The current person taking the seat of our country's presidency is the only one of power who feels that way! Let's stop it from taking effect!

  2. We must take a stand against someone who is acting like a dictator and doesn't reflect the values of this nation as a whole
    Why can't we vote on things like this

    1. Obama took it upon himself to sign an executive order for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. In his own words it was unconstitutional. President Trump ended the program that was against the law which was the right thing to do. Now it is up to Congress to stop whining, pointing fingures and stop worrying about the nest election to pass a law to make sure these young people can stay in a program like DACA. Better yet, while they are at it why not work on a comprehensive imigration package to solve our immigration problem. Yes it is hard work, however that is why they were elected. So roll up your sleves and just do it.
