Mayor Barrett's Statement on DACA

September 5, 2017

Mayor Tom Barrett released the following statement regarding President Trump’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“I am angry to learn of the President’s decision to end DACA, an unnecessary and harmful decision that will negatively impact the lives of so many innocent children, adults and their families.

Throughout my time as Mayor, I’ve had the opportunity to meet numerous members of our immigrant community, and learn more about their contributions to Milwaukee’s workforce needs and cultural vibrancy.

Nearly 8,000 Wisconsinites who contribute to the economic health of our state could potentially be affected by this decision. I stand with business leaders and lawmakers across the country in urging President Trump to reverse his decision and instead choose to uphold the DACA program to provide the necessary protections for our immigrant community until Congress passes comprehensive immigration reform.”
