Statement on the rescission of DACA

Dear Clients, Friends, and Community –

Like many of you, we are dismayed at President Trump’s rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA  enabled 800,000 of our neighbors to come out of the shadows and be an unafraid part of the nation to which they already belong. We stand with them today in calling on Congress to enact a humane solution.

We are following legal developments and will carefully consider strategies and implications for our clients as information becomes available.

For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, DACA supporters are gathering at the San Francisco Federal Building at 5:00PM today.

In solidarity,
Jewell Stewart & Pratt PC
