NEC Urges Congress to Take Action to Protect DACA Particpants

Letter to New England Delegation Encourages Long-Term Solution

The New England Council sent a letter to members of the New England Senate and House delegations this week expressing concern for individuals in the US under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, and urging Congress to enact permanent protections for these members of our communities.  In its letter, the Council notes the valuable contributions the so-called “Dreamers” are making in our region–as students, as employees, and as members of the Armed Services.  The Council pledges our support for our leaders in Congress as they work in the coming months to devise a long-term solution that will safeguard the tens of thousands of young men and women who were brought to the US as children and have in recent years been protected under DACA.
