Public Justice Center statement on DACA announcement

September 5, 2017: Today in a cruel move, the Administration rescinded the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program created in 2012 and in the process, threw 800,000 lives into turmoil. This decision not only impacts the DACA permit holders, but also their families, their friends, their colleagues, and their communities. These young adults have dreams, plans, aspirations --  simply said, they embody the American dream. It is appalling that the Administration continues their anti-immigrant campaign by attacking this group of young adults just because they were born on the other side of the border. Our communities are richer because of their contributions, their hard work and the inspiration that they share. Now more than ever, the Public Justice Center will look to its partners to keep on fighting for our Dreamers and the immigrant community in Baltimore and throughout Maryland.
