Florida Democratic Party Statement on Possible End to DACA
In response to reports that Donald Trump may terminate DACA, Florida Democratic Party Communications Director Johanna Cervone issued the following statement: 
 
"The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program embodies the best of America. Our country is stronger when hardworking families and young people can make meaningful contributions to our economy and society. America is the only home these young immigrants know. Ending DACA without an appropriate legislative solution would devastate Florida's economy and the thousands of DREAMers who live, work, and study here. This would be a cruel and reckless decision by Donald Trump. Rather than tear families apart to score political points, the White House should work to implement bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform."
