In a statement, Jose Lopez, Co-Executive Director of the Make the Road New York immigrant advocacy group said it’s time to create a permanent pathway for undocumented immigrants.
“We know that DACA is lawful, and it has helped and protected immigrants across the country. Nonetheless, DACA has always been temporary. Today’s cruel decision reiterates the urgency for permanent protections for all undocumented immigrants,” Lopez said in a statement Friday. Now more than ever, Congress and the Biden administration must use every means possible to create a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, TPS holders, and essential workers, including budget reconciliation.”
