Congressman MacArthur’s Statement on Supporting DACA

September 6, 2017
Press Release

Washington D.C. - Congressman Tom MacArthur released the following statement opposing the end of DACA and urging a more comprehensive fix to the nation's broken immigration system:

   We need to fix our nation’s immigration system but starting this process by hurting the most innocent and vulnerable population would be wrong and misguided.  Many of the young people affected by DACA have lived in the United States for most of their lives—and in the eyes of their friends, neighbors and communities are just as American as my own kids. They should not be punished for their parents’ crime.
