WASHINGTON – Following President Trump’s announcement that he would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) released the following statement.

"It takes someone with a dark heart to do something as cruel and pointless as this. Dreamers are Americans – they grew up here, went to school here, work here. Their entire lives are here. But this won’t just disrupt their lives, it will also hurt our economy and the local communities that they are an integral part of. I’ve met so many impressive young Dreamers. I want them to know that I’ll keep fighting to keep their families together, and urge them to get in touch with my office if they need help.”
