State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today voiced objections to the Trump Administration’s recent decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The program allowed for certain undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children to receive a work permit and a renewable two-year reprieve from deportation.

“It is unconscionable for President Trump to end the DACA program, essentially calling for the deportation of well over 800,000 children and young adults who were raised here. America is the only home they’ve ever known. The America I know isn’t a nation where we punish children for their parents’ actions.

This repeal is needlessly cruel, inhumane, and un-American. Congress must act swiftly to save these children who are, for all intents and purposes, American. I will introduce a resolution in the Ohio House this week, calling upon Congress to save the DACA program and immediately pass the bipartisan DREAM Act. I will also call upon the Ohio Congressional Delegation to support it.”
