Chairman Crowley Statement on One-Year Anniversary of President Trump’s Decision to Terminate DACA

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx) issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program:

“One year after the Trump administration’s heartless decision to reverse the DACA program, Congressional Republicans continue to do nothing - cowardly refusing to bring any relief or stability to nearly one million young men and women. Today, we are reminded of President Trump’s and Republican leaders’ hypocrisy, cruelty, and cravenness.

“Dreamers are our friends, neighbors, and colleagues. They deserve protection and Democrats won’t rest until that becomes a reality.”
