Rep. Bass Slams Trump’s DACA Repeal

September 5, 2017
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement after the Trump administration announced it would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative.

“Trump's emphatic lack of empathy continues to destroy our communities and stain our reputation abroad. DREAMers aren't just "other country's kids." Especially in Los Angeles, they are students, teachers, coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs and community leaders from every continent. They’re from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. They're friends and they're family. I stand with DREAMers here in Los Angeles and throughout the entire country. We will make this right.”
