SF LGBT Center Statement on Trump Rescinding DACA

This morning Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump administration has rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a move that will affect the futures of 800,000 talented young people. 
 
Statement from SF LGBT Center Interim Executive Director Roberto Isaac Ordeñana:
 
"Today Donald J. Trump continued his immoral and cowardly attacks on the most vulnerable members of our communities. By rescinding DACA, Mr. Trump has put the futures of 800,000 young people who are achieving the American Dream at risk. His callous actions today demonstrates his lack of leadership and continue his pandering to intolerant and hateful factions of the conservative movement. The SF LGBT Center will continue to work with national and local partners to ensure that all immigrants have access to all available resources by providing information, connecting them to legal aid, and supporting local and national legislative action to protect them."
 
The Center's Information & Referral program provides resources to immigration services for all LGBTQ people who need them. Additional programs at the Center also support LGBTQ immigrants and their families by connecting them to other services, including: legal aid, housing, health care, career advancement and employment opportunities, and financial empowerment.
