Cicilline Statement on Trump Ending DACA

Sep 5, 2017

PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today:

“This is a shameful moment for our country. America has always stood as a beacon of freedom and opportunity. But not today." 

“Dreamers were brought here as young children. They love this country. They share our values. They are contributing to their communities every day.”

“What President Trump just did is despicable and cruel. Every Republican should not only be speaking out against this President today, but they should immediately bring legislation to the House floor to right this wrong.” 

“Make no mistake, until they back up their words with actions, Republicans are giving Donald Trump a blank check to put his hateful ideas into action.”
