Faith & Freedom Coalition Statement On DACA

Duluth, GA – Faith & Freedom Coalition Executive Director Tim Head issued the following statement on the Trump’ administrations decision to revoke the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program enacted by former President Barack Obama.

“As the federal courts were about to rule President Obama’s DACA program unconstitutional, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions took proper, pro-active action to phase out the program delivering on their commitment to the rule of law and giving Congress time to pass immigration reforms that secures our borders, protects American workers, and deals with those already here. Trump’s executive action is both compassionate toward all who those who have come to our country and prevents mass deportations that could have resulted from the impending federal court ruling that could break apart immigrant families. President Trump and his administration continue to focus Homeland Security resources on deporting criminals and visa overstays, and not on children who were brought to this country through no choice of their own.”
