Attorney General Maura Healey today issued a statement following the ruling by a federal judge that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) must remain in place while legal challenges to the Trump Administration\u2019s decision to rescind DACA are pending:\n\n\u201cYesterday the court confirmed a fundamental truth: Dreamers are Americans. They grew up in our neighborhoods and attend our schools. They serve in our military and start businesses in our communities. For now, the court\u2019s decision requires the federal government to keep its promises. I look forward to continuing to defend the Dreamers while we wait for Congress to do the right thing and extend permanent protection to these young people.\u201d\n\nAG Healey previously filed suit challenging the administration\u2019s decision to rescind DACA and sent a letter urging President Trump to maintain and defend DACA.
