MIAMI, Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Following Attorney General Sessions’ announcement regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Telemundo released the following statement:
“Telemundo stands with the 800,000 Dreamers who are integral to the economy, culture and spirit of our nation. We are disheartened by the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In addition to the human impact of this decision, repealing DACA will result in the loss of thousands of jobs in the United States and billions of dollars in economic growth over the next decade. We urge Congress to act swiftly to preserve the rights of these valuable members of our community. All of our elected representatives should be held accountable toward this end.”
