Tele-Town Hall: Impact of DACA Repeal on Washington State

September 7, 2017 - 9:47 am

In response to President Trump terminating DACA, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal will host a tele-town hall on Thursday, September 7 at 5:30 p.m.

During the tele-town hall, Jayapal will discuss the impact of DACA on working families in Washington. Constituents are encouraged to call and ask questions. Constituents are encouraged participate in the town hall by calling 877-229-8493 (PIN: 116812)

On September 5, the Trump administration closed the acceptance of new DACA applications and announced the termination of the DACA program, due to take effect on March 5, 2018. The program has provided relief from deportation to nearly 800,000 young people, including close to 18,000 in Washington state.
