LoBiondo Statement on DACA

Sep 5, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Frank LoBiondo (NJ-02) today issued the following statement regarding President Donald J. Trump’s decision to rescind President Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program:

“It was clear from the beginning that President Obama’s DACA program was a violation of executive authority. As designed by our Founders, laws must be created by Congress. President Trump is right to call out Congress for failing to address critical immigration issues for many years. As I have previously stated, young people who came to our nation through no fault of their own should not be punished for the illegal actions of adults. I will again support and vote for legislation that ensures a permanent solution for ‘Dreamers’ so they may continue to live and work in our great country that many of them have only known.”
