Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (TX-10), Chairman of Homeland Security, released the below statement following the Trump administration's announcement to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

Congressman McCaul: “The administration's announcement today restores the rule of law. As I have said many times, immigration changes can only be made by an Act of Congress as enumerated in Article 1, Sections 1 and 8 of the Constitution; not through executive action as the prior administration did. This is the only way to adhere to and respect the separation of powers. Congress is already taking steps to improve our immigration enforcement and border security, and I look forward to continuing to work with this administration.”
