Arizona Chamber of Commerce Statement on Supreme Court Decision Protecting DACA

PHOENIX (June 18, 2020)—Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry President and CEO Glenn Hamer released the following statement on today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting the administration’s attempt to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA:

“Today’s ruling is a welcome relief for hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients who are our friends, neighbors, and coworkers, and who are contributing to the richness of the United States. The average Dreamer is 26 years old. They speak English. They went to school. They got jobs. They started families of their own. It is estimated that more than a quarter-million U.S.-born children have a parent with DACA protections. But this country cannot subject major portions of immigration policy to the whims of one administration to the next. Congress must act to deliver a durable solution rooted in law. DACA recipients should not only be shielded from deportation but should be provided a path to eventual citizenship.”
