<![CDATA[NHMC joined several other civil and human rights organizations last week in demanding President Trump not terminate the Obama administration’s executive action on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In a letter to President Trump, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights spelled out how DACA, originally announced in June 2012, has allowed approximately 750,000 young adults to register with the federal government in return for a two-year reprieve from the threat of deportation. DACA has proven valuable to immigrants originally brought to the United States as children. The letter also urged the president to not deport any DACA recipients–also known as “Dreamers,” lest families be torn apart and our national values be diminished. Instead, the Leadership Conference suggested the President work with Congress to see the enactment of the BRIDGE Act, a intermediate solution that would provide DACA-like protections for Dreamers with the explicit backing of Congress. http://www.nhmc.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/DACA-Letter.pdf]]>
