SENATOR GARCIA ON U.S. SUPREME COURT'S DECISION TO HEAR CASE ON DAPA AND DACA+

Today, the United States Supreme Court announced it will hear the challenge to the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program. Reacting to this announcement, State Senator Sylvia Garcia, Chair of the Texas Senate Hispanic Caucus, stated:

"We're hopeful that the Supreme Court will do the right thing to keep hardworking families together while the nation waits for a permanent sensible immigration policy. It's disappointing that Texas officials would rather pander to political extremes and attempt to break up families than listen to the many businesses, faith leaders, civil rights organizations, and law enforcement officials in support of this program."

State Senator Sylvia R. Garcia represents Senate District 6 in Harris County.
