Statement on the Trump Administration’s Decision on DACA

Washington – Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) released this statement following the announcement by the Trump Administration on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“For the last eight years we saw unprecedented overreach by the Executive Branch. The Obama Administration undermined the democratic process by unilaterally creating immigration policy through executive order. Today, President Trump kept his promise to end the DACA program before the courts found it illegal and invalid. I’ll continue working with my colleagues in Congress to secure our borders, enforce and uphold the rule of law, reform our legal immigration system and put American workers first.”
