Moulton Statement on Administration Decision to End DACA

September 5th, 2017

Moulton: “It is cruel and unusual, and clearly motivated purely by anti-immigrant political pandering”

Washington, D.C. – Today, in response to the Administration’s decision to end DACA, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement:

“DACA has allowed thousands of innocent children to come out of the shadows and get their rightful shot at the American Dream. Repealing DACA puts our friends, neighbors, colleagues, students, and service members at risk of deportation. It is cruel and unusual, and clearly motivated purely by anti-immigrant political pandering. We should be working together, the President and Congress, Democrats and Republicans, on comprehensive immigration reform that includes improved border security and an earned path to citizenship for those who are already part of our communities. I condemn any attempt to repeal DACA and will fight to protect it.”

In Massachusetts alone, DACA has allowed more than 7,900 young people to come forward, pass background checks, and live and work legally in the country. Ending DACA would cost Massachusetts nearly $606.6 million in annual GDP losses.
