Responding today to President Trump’s “heartless and immoral” announcement he is rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals will be local DACA recipients, UFW Foundation and community members and their allies in Bakersfield, Fresno and Salinas.
UFW President Arturo S. Rodriguez said in a statement, “Overturning DACA will needlessly break up the lives of 800,000 brave young adults who are working or going to school—and contributing to America. Many are farm workers who feed this nation or their sons and daughters. They are also doctors, lawyers, researchers, students—all of them supporting America. This is the only home most of them have known. Those who once shared their personal information with the government will now find themselves easy targets. Taking DACA away from them so Donald Trump can try to deport them is heartless and immoral.”
