Mayor Mark Mitchell’s statement on President Donald Trump’s end to DACA
Tempe, AZ - Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell made a statement today on how the end of DACA will impact our community.
“Dreamers are our family, our friends, our neighbors and they are a part of our community. DACA has enabled approximately 28,000 dreamers to live and work legally in Arizona, who contribute to our tax base and economy just like the rest of us. This end to DACA could cost our state GDP more than $1.3 billion annually, it could tear apart families, and it breaks a promise to these young people we made five-years ago. We must come together to protect our dreamers and demand action from Congress to work towards comprehensive immigration reform including a solution for DACA recipients.”
