REP. COSTELLO STATEMENT ON ADMINISTRATION’S DACA ANNOUNCEMENT

September 5, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06) today issued the following statement regarding the Administration’s announcement that it would phase out Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA):

"Congress must provide a humane, permanent, and constitutional solution for children who were brought to the United States at no fault of their own and remain here under DACA, a program that was meant to be temporary. While it is clear the Obama Administration abused executive authority in implementing DACA, it is now up to Congress to pass legislation to give these individuals clear standards as to how they may remain domiciled in the United States. We also need to address sanctuary cities, border security, and our visa program as part of immigration reform." –Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06)
