FIRM Action Welcomes Latest DACA Court Ruling, Keeps Eyes on Midterms

(WASHINGTON)—A federal judge ruled that DACA should be fully restored. Sulma Arias, immigration field director for FIRM Action, issued the statement below in response:

“Judge Bates’ decision is encouraging for the hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth who call this country home, and who have had their lives upended last September when Trump terminated the DACA program. This is the third ruling in favor of undocumented youth.

Our families and communities have demonstrated their resilience in the face of countless unprecedented attacks by Trump. And, because we know the administration will likely appeal the decision, our fight for undocumented youth and families continues.

Congress has the ability to fix this mess Trump created once and for all by passing the DREAM Act. Every sitting member of Congress who has failed to vote for the DREAM Act will have to answer for it in November.”
