ABA urges executive branch to rescind decision to end DACA

The House of Delegates approves Resolution 108E on Feb. 5 during the 2018 Midyear Meeting session in Vancouver.

The resolution asks the executive branch to rescind its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which affects several hundred thousand “Dreamers” — immigrants who were brought into the United States illegally by their parents when they were children.

The resolution was sponsored by the ABA Criminal Justice Section.
