President Trump's Negotiations with Key Democrats Set Stage for Potential Bipartisan DACA Legislation

September 15, 2017

With many "Dreamers" working for U.S. companies pursuant to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), the business community has generally been supportive of reestablishing the policy originally instituted by President Obama.  The support underlines broader issues in the immigration policy arena; specifically, the important role foreign-born workers of all skill levels play in benefiting their companies, communities, American workers, and the American economy—facts that are not always emphasized in much of the rhetoric surrounding the issue.  The Association is strongly supportive of enshrining DACA into law.  If your company is interested in helping with efforts to pass DACA legislation, please email us at info@hrpolicy.org
