United Farm Workers President Teresa Romero issued the following statement from the union’s Keene, Calif. headquarters after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program:
The Obama-Biden administration created DACA to protect the Dreamers. The Trump administration rescinded DACA. The Supreme Court told the Trump administration that it can end DACA, but it has to end it in a legal way that will take several months. Now a Biden presidency and Democratic U.S. Senate can pass a law permanently protecting Dreamers, enact additional broadly-backed immigration reforms such as the Farm Workforce Modernization Act plus other changes our country needs.
Elections matter. Vote on November 3.
