Senator Wiener’s Statement on President Trump’s Decision to End DACA

September 5, 2017

Sacramento –  Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) released the following statement after President Donald Trump officially ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) today:

“Just when President Trump can’t seem to go any lower, he one-ups himself by going after immigrant children. Ending DACA is a disaster that will only serve to tear families apart and stoke fear and distrust in our immigrant communities. Trump’s odious immigration policies expose him for what he is – a divisive, destructive nativist with no concern for the well-being of the people who live in this country. California will continue to be strong in supporting our immigrant neighbors. We will work to safeguard immigrant rights and resist any federal policies that target immigrants or other vulnerable community.”
