Grassley Statement on White House’s DACA/Border Security Framework

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today made the following statement regarding the White House’s plan to curb illegal immigration and provide legal status for people illegally brought to the United States by their parents.
 
“We all agree that Congress needs to act to address those who were brought here illegally through no fault of their own, but we also must make sure that other young people don’t find themselves in the same legal limbo in the future. President Trump’s framework accomplishes these goals and gives federal law enforcement the crucial authorities needed to target criminals. The plan honors the four key pillars to meaningful reform that were agreed to at a bipartisan, bicameral meeting with the President earlier this month. This is a plan that both chambers of Congress and members of both parties should be able to support,” Grassley said.
