WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte issued the following statement today on the letter sent from 9 State Attorneys General and the Governor of Idaho threatening to sue the Federal Government to end DACA
“President Trump has stated he intends to protect Dreamers. We hope he takes this opportunity to make clear he opposes this attack from 9 members of his own party that would undermine his stated intention.
The consequences of repealing DACA would be severe and profound. Let’s be clear: this effort to repeal DACA would eliminate the ability of 800,000 of our best and brightest young people to legally work in this country and put each and every one of them at immediate risk of deportation. It is an assault not only on the basic rights of these Dreamers and to the millions of their family, friends and coworkers, but on the promise our nation made to them.
FWD.us will fight tirelessly to protect DACA and the 800,000 Dreamers who can fully contribute to this country because of this transformational program.”
