National Hispanic Media Coalition on Trump Administration's Decision to End DACAToday, Alex Nogales, president and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, released the following statement on President Trump's decision to rescind DACA: "This shameful president and his racist Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, have decided to terminate the DACA program, and rather than do it themselves, they have thrown the issue to Congress to decide how it is going to be done. There are approximately 800,000 DREAMers that will be affected by this callous action, 200,000 here in California, the vast majority Latinos. And this terrible news is sure to demoralize these young people, our kids, who are among our best and brightest. To them we say: Be strong, we're with you, and we'll fight with you to keep you here, safe and sound. Stay strong."
