Gardner Statement on Supreme Court DACA Decision

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

“While today’s decision provides some clarity for the thousands of DACA recipients who call Colorado home, Congress still needs to reach a long-term solution for Dreamers in the United States—including a pathway to citizenship,” said Senator Gardner. “That’s why I support immediate passage of the Dream Act and would also support the House-passed Dream and Promise Act. The Senate should act quickly to provide permanent relief for Dreamers. I will continue to work across the aisle with my colleagues in Congress to deliver certainty for Dreamers in a way the Court cannot.”
