AAP California Supports DACA Recipients In Brief To U.S. Supreme Court (Nov 2019)

For over 72,000 children of DACA recipients living in California, the threat of the loss of their parents creates significant and ongoing traumatic stress with long-term negative consequences for their health and well-being. 5,000 California Pediatricians across our state stand with our patients, DACA recipients and their children, in demanding that the government protect the DACA program and keep these families together.

To that end, AAP California joined nearly three dozen organizations & leaders in filing an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the court to consider the impact of rescinding DACA on beneficiaries’ children, who are U.S. citizens. (November 2019)
