Assembly Caucus Chair Mike Gipson’s Statement on the DACA ruling by SCOTUS

Thursday, June 18, 2020

SACRAMENTO, Calif --- Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson (D-Carson) released the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals):

“The Supreme Court ruling on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was the right decision. It recognizes that American-born residents deserve to stay here and that the president was wrong in his efforts to end DACA.

However, more must be done. The U.S. Senate, under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, continues to ignore legislation passed by Congress that would effectively move immigrants towards citizenship.

Although this is a significant step in the right direction, we must continue to push for the safety and security of all immigrants.”
