CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish issued the following statement:

“President Trump’s decision to end DACA, or the “Dreamer’s Act,” will be tragic for almost one million young people across the country, including 4,000 in Ohio. Without an extension, these children will suddenly become illegal and unwanted in our country, one that has been built on the strength, dedication and hard work of immigrants from all over the world. I urge Congress to put aside its differences and to pass DACA. It is the American thing to do.”
