Congressman Johnson’s Statement on Trump Rescinding DACA

September 5, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced it would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“By rescinding DACA, President Trump is sending a clear and unambiguous message to his Steve Bannon-alt right supporters that they have a friend in the White House. This rescission is consistent with President Trump’s despicable pardoning of convicted civil rights violator Sheriff Joe Arpaio, which came on the heels of the President’s reference to Nazi, Klan and alt-right sympathizers in Charlottesville as “good people.” President Trump did the wrong thing in failing to protect our DACA youth, and history will judge him harshly. Congress must now move immediately to pass legislation that protects these courageous, patriotic DREAMers.”
