U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) released the following statement on the Administration's announcement on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA):

"Those protected under DACA came here as children with their parents -- at no fault of their own -- and have been here for years and years. In that time, they've worked to provide for their families, pay taxes, and contribute to the American economy. While I am disappointed the Administration has chosen to rescind this program, I am hopeful that Congress will take this opportunity to work together and find a long-term legislative solution that reflects our country's values and supports driven young people looking to work and live in the country they call home."
