DACA: We Will Not Retreat
National DSA’s Immigrants’ Rights Committee has published a strong statement denouncing Trump’s decision to end DACA, signed by representatives of many DSA groups including MADSA (and more have signed on since this was posted).
The statement begins:
“President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, under pressure from a nine-state coalition led by the Texas Attorney General, represents another racist attack by his administration on immigrants, in this case on young people who were brought into the United States as children. The undersigned members of the Democratic Socialists of America denounce the repeal of DACA and maintain solidarity with the nearly one million DACA recipients who will become targets for harassment and deportation by ICE. . . ”
