Stanton Statement on Trump Decision to Terminate DACAStanton Statement on Trump Decision to Terminate DACA<div class="ExternalClass1EDED370CA4E4659A39A92920F9D8669"><p>Mayor Greg Stanton released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced this morning it would terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects nearly 30,000 undocumented Arizonans from deportation.</p><p>"Terminating DACA is a cruel decision from a President who promised to treat the young people in the program 'with heart.' This decision aims to tear students, neighbors and friends away from their families, away from a country that they are making greater through their contributions, and away from the only home they know. DREAMers make Phoenix and our country stronger. Their fight is our fight. They are being used as political pawns by Donald Trump. That's just wrong."</p></div>9/5/2017 5:30:00 PMRobbie Sherwood480-246-7944
