Cisneros, Correa praise Supreme Court decision in DACA case

Rep. Cisneros Praises SCOTUS Decision to Protect DREAMers

Representative Gilbert R. Cisneros, Jr. (CA-39) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to protect DREAMers and reject the Trump Administration’s attempt to overturn DACA:

“The Supreme Court’s decision is a huge victory for our DREAMers, their families, and our country. They are our doctors, teachers, small business owners, coworkers, neighbors, and loved ones. They are on the frontlines of this pandemic, as 200,000 DACA recipients are keeping us safe and healthy every day. The United States is their home, and I’m glad the Supreme Court recognizes that.

“In the 39th District and across the United States, DREAMers have built a life, contributed to society, and made our communities better. They are every bit as American as anybody else in our country. While today is a cause to celebrate, Congress can still do more. We still have a responsibility to ensure DREAMers have a pathway to citizenship. I strongly urge the Senate to immediately pass H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act. Every day, and especially today, I stand with the 11,000 DREAMers in the 39th District and will continue to fight for them.”

On June 4, 2020, Rep. Cisneros voted for and the House passed H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act which will offer a pathway to citizenship for these and similarly situated immigrants who have spent much of their lives in the United States. The bill is currently awaiting a vote in the Senate.

Rep. Lou Correa Applauds Supreme Court On DACA Decision

Congressman Lou Correa released the following statement praising the Supreme Court for affirming DACA:

“DREAMers have earned the right to the American Dream. They follow the law, contribute to our economy, pay taxes, and many are doctors, nurses, police officers, firefighter, and serve in our military. Our community in North Orange County is home to the largest number of DREAMers in America.

“Despite the decisiveness of American politics, the Supreme Court has ruled on the right side of the law and history. They truly are an independent body and America’s conscience—just as the founders intended.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that our nation is stronger and better with these new Americans. Today, the Supreme Court has assured the more than 800,000 DACA recipients will continue to contribute to our great country.

“Today commonsense prevailed.”
