CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER’S STATEMENT ON

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S DECISION TO END DACA

 

WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09), who in June urged his colleagues to support legislation cracking down on “sanctuary cities,” had this response to President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“Congress makes the law, and so President Trump is correct to ask Congress to fully review and act on the DACA issue. 

“We must not facilitate ongoing subterfuge of strong immigration policy in any consideration of DACA.  We must secure our border, eliminate sanctuary cities, and end efforts to shield illegal immigrants from the rule of law.”
