Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Eastern District of New York ruled to fully reinstate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative:
“Eight years ago, our nation took a momentous step for equality and opportunity when President Obama launched DACA, empowering young Dreamers to pursue their American Dream and, in doing so, make America more American. With today’s ruling, the Courts have once again upheld this bedrock initiative, which respects our American values and the will of the American people.
“Dreamers need and deserve real, permanent action to ensure that they can continue to contribute to our nation. In the 117th Congress, our Democratic House Majority will once again pass bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers, which will be signed into law by the Biden-Harris Administration. We call on Congressional Republicans to end their eighteen month-long obstruction of legislation to protect Dreamers, and listen to the overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans calling for its passage.
“In his final days in office, President Trump must end his ugly and inhumane assault on the young immigrant communities who bless and strengthen our country and obey this ruling immediately.”
