Cárdenas Statement on Supreme Court DACA Decision

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Tony Cárdenas (CA-29) releases the following statement on the Supreme Court decision to block President Trump from ending DACA:

“The Supreme Court Decision to block Donald Trump from ending DACA is a huge win. As the proud son of immigrants, this issue is personal. Immigrants are a vital part of our country. They contribute to our economy and are essential to the success of America.

“As we work to address the coronavirus pandemic, more than 200,000 Dreamers are essential workers keeping services running – including the nearly 30,000 health care workers, like doctors and nurses, who are on the frontlines.

“While this decision was undoubtedly great, our work is still not done. I am committed to fighting for DACA recipients to guarantee them and their families a pathway to citizenship.”
