Chairman Crowley Statement on Fifth Anniversary of Enrollment in DACA Program

August 15, 2017

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the fifth anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program taking effect:

“The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program brought stability, hope, and opportunity to millions of children and remains a critical program that creates a stronger United States. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration seems bent on undoing this progress in a crude attempt to further its anti-immigrant agenda. But DACA recipients, including those in Queens and the Bronx, should be assured that Democrats are fiercely continuing to fight for them. We will not stand quietly by while President Trump attacks key principles of the American Dream.”
