Much-needed win also acknowledges fundamental rights and dignity of all DACA recipients.
CHICAGO, June 18, 2020—CTU President Jesse Sharkey issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s decision today on DACA.
“The Supreme Court decision to not cancel DACA is a sigh of relief for the 600,000 people who have been in limbo since 2017. This much-needed win also acknowledges that DACA recipients and all immigrants are an essential part of the fabric of this country.
“DACA was hard won by unapologetic undocumented youth who came out of the shadows and put their lives on the lines to demand that their humanity be recognized. But we must continue to fight for the 12 million other undocumented people: mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and others whose lives in this country are still uncertain and face the threat of the Trump deportation machine.”
