U.S. Supreme Court decides to uphold DACA Program
CHICAGO – In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, thus providing renewable work permits for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, Assistant Majority Leader Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago) released the following statement:
“An immigrant’s livelihood should never be threatened, it should be celebrated. I commend undocumented immigrants on their courage to contribute to our society, even though their rights as workers are oftentimes challenged and vulnerable.
I am thrilled by the court’s decision to continue support for Dreamers and hope to see the DACA Program permanently protected by Congress, before it’s contested again.”
