Yarmuth Statement on Supreme Court's DACA Ruling

June 18, 2020
Press Release

LOUISVILLE– Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) released the statement below following today’s Supreme Court decision to block President Trump’s rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“Today’s decision protecting Dreamers from deportation is another victory for human rights and basic decency in our country. We should all breathe a sigh of relief that those who've spent most of their lives as assets to our communities can now truly call America home. That even this conservative Supreme Court would again reject the administration is a clear sign that the cruelty that guides this president and his Republican enablers is radically dangerous and has no place in American law.”
