In Support of DACA

On Tuesday, September 5th, The Trump administration announced, via Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that in 6 months they will end the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, which allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. 

This action puts the immigration status of almost 8,000 people in Massachusetts and 800,000 people nation wide in jeopardy. In response to this, the Massachusetts Democratic Party issued the following statement

Today, the Trump Administration reaffirmed its agenda to vilify and punish our nation’s immigrant community – once again forcing them back into the shadows and tearing families apart. The President and extremist Republicans continue to ignore the fact that we’re a nation of immigrants and continue to undermine our American ideals of inclusion and diversity.

Massachusetts Democrats – including our Senators, Congressional Delegation, and Attorney General Maura Healey – stand with the 7,934 DACA recipients in Massachusetts and the 800,000 across the nation who have long considered America home and have made great contributions to our economy, our society, and our communities.

Here are some things you can do to support the Democratic party and our elected officials as they stand against this hateful action:
