Illinois Senior Senator is applauding a decision by the Supreme Court. Thursday the Court rejected President Trump’s repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA. The act passed into law in 2013 forged a pathway to citizenship for children who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents. Democrat Dick Durbin says there are now 700,000 kids who have grown up in the United States that are serving the country in all manner of jobs and careers.
Durbin remains worried that the Trump Administration will work to strip away the protections afforded by to dreamers by DACA.
