AAPCA1 Response to DACA phase out


The Northern California Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics expresses profound disappointment with the administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals protection and heartfelt support for the approximately 800,000 young immigrants (200,00 in California) brought to the U.S. as children. As an organization of pediatric health care providers, our number one priority is to assure the health and well-being of ALL children and their families. We call on Congress to pass a just and moral legislation to extend DACA protection permanently.”
