PRESS RELEASE: Weinholtz Statement On Supreme Court DAPA and DACA Ruling | Mike For Utah

Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Mike Weinholtz, issued the following statement today after the US Supreme Court announced that it was deadlocked with a 4-4 ruling on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a major setback for over 17,000 Utahns affected by this decision. It’s heartbreaking because so many families – our neighbors – have made Utah their home and are part of this community – working, paying taxes, serving in the military – yet they still have to remain in legal limbo.

It’s imperative that Congress passes comprehensive immigration reform to provide safety from deportation, and the ability to make a living for these families who are being pulled apart.”
