Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

"I applaud President Trump and Attorney General Sessions' decision today to end the DACA program. Despite former President Obama's reliance on executive orders to create unconstitutional immigrant amnesty programs, it is the Congress' constitutional duty to write laws. Before considering any immigration reform, Congress should first pass legislation to fund the Border Wall. Only after securing the border, can Congress in good faith address immigration reform."
