SEATTLE, WA – “Our Dreamers represent the future of our country and in them is our hope for a vibrant and colorful America. The Supreme Court’s ruling against the Trump administration’s cruel efforts to end DACA is a win for us all. We now call on legislators to develop a pathway for DACA recipients to receive citizenship.” Joon Bang, President & CEO, NAPCA
