Press Release

We Did This: Supreme Court Upholds DACA, Delivers Blow to Trump’s Racist Agenda

The decision reaffirms DACA is right , and that for young immigrants home is here.
WASHINGTON -

Today, the Supreme Court announced a 5-4 ruling on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program cases, ruling that Trump unlawfully attempted to end the DACA program.

Lorella Praeli, President of Community Change Action, said the following in response:

“Today’s decision is evidence that people power is what will transform this country to one where everyone is welcomed. This decision will protect the nearly 700,000 DACA holders who rely on the program to work and live their lives here in the United States.

DACA is the most successful immigration policy of our generation and demonstrates the power of solutions generated directly from impacted people. We need more solutions that center our communities and our lived experience--the roadmap to transformational change.

While this decision affirms that home is here for DACA holders and their families, this Administration will continue to push their racist agenda without hesitation. Members of Congress must heed our calls to stop funding the law enforcement agencies that terrorize immigrant, Latinx and Black communities.

Our country is experiencing a reckoning as Black people in this country are protesting in defense of Black lives and fighting to root out systemic racism. We stand with them and know that our fights for justice are intertwined. We will continue to  fight in the streets, in state legislatures, in Congress, and at the ballot box. Together, we will continue to build a country where we can all thrive.
