PHOENIX – Now that the Trump administration has set an end date for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program while urging Congress to craft a larger immigration program update, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce urges Congress to work diligently on an immigration solution which enables Arizona’s 28,000 DACA participants to continue contributing to Arizona’s economic success.
“Deporting 800,000 kids is not a reasonable solution to a much more complicated issue,” said Todd Sanders, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. “Since the president has set the table here, we echo the call to Congress to start working immediately to craft an immigration solution within the president’s timeline which will allow these children to realize their full potential as contributing members to the country.”
