Today, I am proud to join scores of mayors across the country in calling for restoration of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and for the protection of more than 700,000 Dreamers.  #DefendDACA

Dreamers are fully part of our community and, together with their families, contribute immeasurably to the health, vitality, and success of our nation.  Allowing Dreamers to remain in the only country they have ever called home is both the right thing to do morally, and the smart thing to do in terms of our national self-interest.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors has designated December 6th as the beginning of “DACA Days of Action,” and I hope that our voices joined together will have a positive impact on Congress.
