Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement Tuesday after Attorney General Jeff Sessions formally announced the Trump Administration will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

"Dreamers are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. They are part of the diverse and beautiful fabric of our nation. In 2012, because of the persistence of many of those Dreamers, we promised them a chance to live, work, learn, and contribute to this country without being ripped away from the only home most of them have ever known. We promised to protect the 800,000 DACA recipients from deportation.

“President Trump wants to break that promise by ending DACA. President Trump's decision to subject Dreamers to mass deportation is part of the bigoted and anti-immigrant policies that have been a cornerstone of his administration. Tu
‎rning our backs on Dreamers makes us weaker, makes us less safe, and betrays our values.

“America should keep its promises, and if President Trump doesn't know that, then Congress must pass legislation to make the DACA program permanent. We cannot sit back while our family, friends, and neighbors are driven out of their homes. We must fight to protect Dreamers and protect DACA."
