Congress must act to legislate the deferred action for childhood arrivals. Known as DACA, this action, which President Trump has ordered to end by March of 2018, is under administrative law at the moment. Congress can and should change it.
My campaign fully supports DACA as administrative law and now as proposed legislation. So, too, does it support immigration reform. Immigration reform not only comports with the value and values of our country — the economic value that immigrants bring and consistent with the historical moral strength of the United States, but it will put to rest an issue that unnecessarily roils us.
Let’s have immigration laws that we feel are right and balanced. Those are the laws to enforce and not ones that scapegoat and discriminate against millions of good, hard-working people who would love nothing more than to be citizens.
