CAIR Kentucky Condemns the End of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

LEXINGTON, KY, 9/6/17) -- The Kentucky chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations Kentucky (CAIR-KY) today joined its national headquarters in condemning the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

program by President Donald Trump.

 

DACA is the Obama-era federal administrative relief from deportation policy that protects the rights of some 800,000 undocumented young people, commonly referred to as “Dreamers,” brought to the United States as children.

 

Yesterday, CAIR's national office issued a statement referring to the termination of DACA as “pandering to the demands of anti-immigrant extremists.”

CAIR-KY is encouraging elected officials to enact policies prohibiting discrimination based on citizenship and to offer sanctuary and support for Dreamers.

 

CAIR-KY asks community members to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR's Civil Rights Department at 202-742-6420 or by filing a report at: http://www.cair.com/report

 

Because of the rise in hate incidents, CAIR recently launched an app to share critical "know your rights" information and to simplify the process to report hate crimes and bias incidents.
