Washington, D.C. – The epitome of a sore loser, Trump tweeted this morning that he was preparing to submit “enhanced papers” to end DACA. 

Cristina Jiménez, Co-founder and Executive Director of United We Dream Action:

“Yesterday, immigrant youth and allies won at the Supreme Court. We said it then and we’ll say it again: the Supreme Court ruled in our favor. 

But Trump could still try to end DACA. As long as Trump is in office our communities and democracy are not safe. Since he launched his campaign in 2016, Trump has attacked immigrant communities, from the Muslin Ban, to separating children from parents, putting children in cages, and trying to kill DACA and TPS. 

This election is the fight of our lives and we must ensure that every voter knows why we must defeat Trump and Republicans who have cowardly stood by and done nothing to reject Trump’s actions. We are committed to mobilizing thousands of voters to defeat them this November.”
