WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) this week joined colleagues in sending a letter to President Trump expressing support for maintaining the protections of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and additionally issued the following statement:

“These young adults were brought to America as children through no fault of their own and know no other country to call home, and we must continue pressing for immigration reform that will provide them with a pathway to citizenship. We have violent criminals preying on our communities, and our resources should be going toward their deportation instead of being directed toward the young men and women protected through DACA, who are working toward a better future.”
