Wilk response to White House announcement on DACA

Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Senator Scott Wilk, R-Antelope Valley, issued the following statement in response to today's announcement from the federal government about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program:

“Our present federal immigration system is not working. Given this morning’s announcement, Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been handed the opportunity to work together and enact meaningful bipartisan immigration policy.  

“Immigration policy is too important to do by Executive Order. I encourage all parties to come to the table to create a long-term solution.”
