Rubio Statement on Trump Administration’s Plan to Rescind DACA

Sep 5, 2017 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement today regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement that the Trump Administration plans to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in six months:

“I have long supported accommodating those brought to this country illegally through no fault of their own. However, I have always felt that President Obama’s executive action was unconstitutional and that the right way to address this issue was through legislation. Congress now has less than six months to deal with this the right way, through the legislative process. It is important that the White House clearly outline what kind of legislation the president is willing to sign. We have no time to waste on ideas that do not have the votes to pass or that the president won’t sign.”
