Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup’s order that the Trump administration  resume accepting renewal applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program:

“While I’m glad to see this federal order allowing Dreamers to apply to have their DACA status renewed, this ruling could be stopped or overturned in a matter of hours and no temporary relief for Dreamers can reduce the vital urgency of passing permanent protections for Dreamers. These young people are Americans in every way but on paper and they deserve not only to stay, but also to know that no judge or administration will force them from their country.”
