DNC on Supreme Court Oral Arguments in DACA Case

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement ahead of oral arguments in the case of Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California, in which the Trump administration has sought to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“The U.S. Supreme Court should see straight through the Trump administration’s lies. DACA is not only lawful, but critical to making sure hundreds of thousands of people can stay in the only country they call home. DACA recipients are Americans in every way but on paper. These are our neighbors and friends, our classmates and co-workers. And they deserve the opportunity to stay in the communities they contribute to every single day. It’s time for the Supreme Court to put an end to Trump’s cruelty once and for all.”
