(BIVN) – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on Tuesday in response to the Trump administration’s decision to end the DACA, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“This is one of the most inhumane things this administration could do. It doesn’t matter where you stand on immigration. We should all be able to agree that people who came here as children, who have grown up as American as anyone else’s kids, should not be stripped away from the communities they’re a part of to go back to a country they don’t remember.
“People trusted the government when they chose to register as Dreamers. And now, this administration has betrayed their trust and will ruin their lives.”
