9-5-17

SAN FRANCISCO - California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement addressing President Trump's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

"DACA provides stability to people working hard to support their families and improve their communities. They pay taxes. They go to school. America is their home."

"President Trump and Congressional Republicans have manufactured a crisis that cruelly and unnecessarily puts around 800,000 lives in limbo. Congressional Republican leaders must act immediately to fill the Trump administration's moral vacuum."
