Feinstein Supports California Lawsuit to Preserve DACA

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement in support of a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Becerra to preserve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program or DACA:

“I strongly support Attorney General Becerra’s decision to take legal action to preserve the DACA program and protect more than 223,000 Californians from deportation.

“While I’m confident that DACA would be upheld, this action by Attorney General Becerra is no substitute for congressional action. Dreamers need a permanent, legislative solution that provides a path to citizenship. We should pass the DREAM Act as soon as possible.”
