Menendez on Supreme Court Not Taking Up DACA

 
NEWARK, N.J. — U.S.Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision not to take up the Trump administration’s attempt to end DACA in its current term:

“Dreamers may breathe a temporary sigh of relief that the Supreme Court has left their protections intact for the time being, but their lives, unfortunately, remain in limbo due to President Trump’s heartless decision to unilaterally end the DACA program. We must continue the fight for a lasting and permanent pathway to citizenship that reflects our values as a nation and secures a future for Dreamers in the only country they’ve ever called home. 

“If there is a silver lining in today’s decision from the Supreme Court, it’s that Dreamers will have more time to submit renewal applications. I urge DACA beneficiaries to check the status of their permits and renew immediately if eligible.”
