DNC Statement on Supreme Court Not Taking Up DACA

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision not to take up the Trump administration’s attempt to end DACA in its current term:

“The Supreme Court made the right call today. Trump’s cruelty toward immigrants knows no bounds, but that doesn’t mean his administration can sidestep the rule of law. Trump’s attack on the DACA program goes against the will of almost 90% of Americans who want DACA recipients to stay in the U.S. These are our neighbors and friends, our classmates and co-workers. They are American in every way but on paper, and they deserve the chance to stay in the country they call home. It is long past time for Trump to stop using them as bargaining chips and work with Democrats to fix our broken immigration system.”
