SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblyman Dante Acosta (R-Santa Clarita) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“Congress should act immediately to fix our broken immigration system. Along with border security and modernizing our processes, the first steps should include protecting Dreamers. America should not be in the business of deporting children brought here through no fault of their own. They deserve a chance within reasonable timeframes to become citizens of the only country they know as home.”
