Just a few days before Father’s Day, the Trump administration revoked President Obama’s immigration action DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents) on June 15, 2017.

“SEIU members, our families, and our communities will continue to resist these attacks on immigrants.”
– Rocio Sáenz, SEIU International Executive Vice President and iAmerica Action President
