Carbajal Applauds Supreme Court Decision Protecting Dreamers
For Immediate Release
“DACA gave nearly 800,000 young immigrants a shot at the American dream. Dreamers represent the best of our American values and their contributions make our country stronger. Today, the dream is alive once again.
“While today’s Supreme Court decision is a major win, I will not rest until protections for Dreamers are codified into law. The House has passed the Dream and Promise Act, and now the Senate must act. The Trump administration now needs to immediately reopen DACA applications for all applicants.
“As someone who immigrated to this country as a young boy, this issue is very personal to me. When my parents brought me to America, I was given the opportunity to work hard, get a good education, and serve my country in the military, local government, and now in Congress. Dreamers deserve this same opportunity. They are our neighbors, students, family members, teachers, and medical professionals. For them, home is here. And I’m glad they are here to stay.
Rep. Salud Carbajal represents California’s 24th Congressional District, encompassing all of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, and part of Ventura County.
