Press Release

Washington DC - Rep. Raul Ruiz, M.D. (CA-36) today put out a statement responding to the Supreme Court ruling that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program cannot be shut down.

Statement from Dr. Ruiz:

"Today is a great day for our nation! The Supreme Court ruled President Obama’s #DACA program constitutional, giving relief to thousands of DACA recipient Dreamers in our communities. The work is not done. I will continue the fight for a legislative fix and demand a vote in the Senate for the House-passed American Dream and Promise Act, which I voted for and cosponsored. Protecting dreamers that go to school, serve in our military, and contribute to our economy has widespread bipartisan support, and Senate Leader McConnell must stop playing politics and bring it up for a vote."
