  • I Have DACA: How Does the President’s Decision Affect Me?

    As President Trump has decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), I am seeking a legislative solution in Congress to make the program permanent. The Administration’s decision affects nearly 42,000 New Yorkers who, thanks to DACA, previously received legal protection and legal status. While I will continue working to resolve this situation in Congress, in the meantime, it is important for New Yorkers to understand how they might be affected. I have compiled several resources to help explain these changes. As always, for additional information you should feel free to contact my offices.
