Congressman Ami Bera (D-CA) released the following statement in response to the Trump administration's decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA):

"This decision by the Trump administration goes against our American values, plain and simple. Children brought to the United States -- through no fault of their own -- deserve our compassion. These children have passed background checks and are already contributing to our economy as productive residents. Detaining and deporting children is not only morally wrong, it doesn't make economic sense. I urge the administration to reverse this decision immediately."
