Following President Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhoof Arrivals (DACA) Program, U.S. Representative Richard E. Neal released the following statement:

"President Trump's decision to end DACA is disgraceful. Sending innocent DREAMers back to their home countries through no fault of their own is shameful. These individuals are our neighbors, friends, and family members. They have contributed to our communities in the hopes of attaining the American Dream. I urge Speaker Ryan and the Republican House leadership to bring the DREAM Act to the floor for a debate immediately."
