MURPHY STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT OVERRULING TRUMP’S ATTEMPT TO RESCIND DACA

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Thursday made the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule the Trump administration’s attempt to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: 

“For far too long, Dreamers and their loved ones have been living in limbo under the threat of deportation. It’s a relief that today’s Supreme Court decision ends some of this uncertainty and continues to protect Dreamers,” said Murphy. “But this is only a partial, temporary victory. The Trump administration has shown time and again its desire to attack immigrants, and it’s up to Congress to pass legislation that permanently protects Dreamers. I’ve met so many incredible Dreamers across Connecticut, who work hard every day to make our country better and contribute to our economy. The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we need to keep it that way.”
