Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to expedite the Trump Administration’s challenge to a lower court ruling blocking implementation of the Trump decision to end DACA:

“Today’s Supreme Court action shows that rescinding DACA was not only legally questionable, but also unjust and cruel.  The court’s action is welcome news, but only Congress can provide the permanent protection our Dreamers need and deserve.  

“Republicans’ shameful refusal to take action means that every day, Dreamers are forced to live in limbo, with their wellbeing, futures and status at risk.  House Republicans must listen to the overwhelming will of the American people and immediately bring a bipartisan DREAM Act to the floor.  

“Democrats will continue to fight to protect Dreamers, who are the pride of our nation.”
