Statement from President Yvonne R. Walker and SEIU Local 1000 in defense of DACA and solidarity with Dreamers

SEIU Local 1000 stands in solidarity with Dreamers and in defense of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Their fight is our fight.

Through DACA, 800,000 Dreamers have taken their place in our communities without fear of reprisal.

The current administration’s decision to end DACA is an attack on the American Dream and on hardworking families who aspire to achieve it.

They are college students and workers who make countless contributions as they pursue the American Dream. This is the only home they know.

Our nation recognized the potential of these children, and they have fulfilled their promise to society through their hard work and determination to succeed.

It’s time for Congress to act now.
