Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN05) issued the following statement on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

"The dissolving of DACA will not take place for another six months, giving Congress time to work to provide these kids who are woven into our communities, the reassurance that they will be able to continue living their lives as they always have. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to find a compassionate resolution that will not punish children for the actions of their parents. Sending these children back to countries they are not familiar with is not the solution."

"This issue further emphasizes my continued belief that we must focus on reforming our nation's broken immigration system. It is essential that our immigration system be reflective of our national interests while keeping Americans safe."
