NHDP Statement: Trump administration's decision to end DACA is cowardly, counterproductive
Concord, N.H. - NHDP Chairman Ray Buckley issued the following statement on the Trump administration's decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which has protected young undocumented immigrants brought here as children through no fault of their own. "DREAMers, many of whom are still children, are a part of our American family. Today, the Trump administration kicked this hardworking, inspiring group out of our shared home. So many DREAMers know no other country, flag or allegiance and came here through no fault of their own. DACA is simply a chance for DREAMers to work hard and stay in the country they deservedly call their own. Today's decision by the Trump administration and the way in which they handled it are vindictive, cowardly, counterproductive and wrong-headed. It's not how we've ever behaved in America and it is hypocritical for a country founded by, built by, and prosperous because of immigrants."
