McMorris Rodgers Statement on Supreme Court’s DACA Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement on today’s Supreme Court decision on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  

“I’ve long said I didn’t agree with the way the previous administration went about enacting DACA, but when President Trump announced his decision to end the program, it became clear that Congress needed to act to provide long-term certainty for these individuals who came here at no fault of their own,” said McMorris Rodgers. “Today’s decision doesn’t change the fact that Congress needs to work to establish common-sense policies for children of immigrants, like those here in Eastern Washington, and recognize their unique circumstances and the value they bring to the country as students, job-holders, members of the military, and members of society.”
