Washington, D.C. – OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates is outraged at President Trump’s decision to immediately end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program.

“We are outraged that President Trump eliminated the DACA program. Despite bipartisan and overwhelming American support, President trump still condemned over 100,000 DREAMers to deportation. In light of the President's failure, Congress must swiftly pass the DREAM Act or similar legislation. There needs to be policies that lay out a clear path to citizenship, and separate local law enforcement from federal immigration enforcement. OCA will work with our community partners to fight to protect undocumented communities,” said Vicki Shu, OCA National Vice President of Public Affairs.

OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates is a national organization of community advocates dedicated to the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs.)
