Sen. Crapo on DACA: ‘Reforms must be done through a public process’

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo issued this statement on DACA:

“The appropriate treatment of children brought to the United States illegally at a young age is one of the key issues we must deal with in immigration reform legislation. However, the DACA program was created unconstitutionally without the public accountability and deliberation provided by an act of Congress.  There is urgent need for Congress to enact rational, comprehensive immigration policy.  To ensure widespread confidence and long-term sustainability, reforms must be done through a public process that includes the American people, Congress, and the Administration. Today’s announcement by the Administration returns the decision-making for immigration policy, including the DACA program, to the people's representatives in Congress for action.”
