NVTC Board Chair Rich Montoni and NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg Join Top Business Leaders in Signing Letter In Support of DACA


Sept. 5, 2017 - NVTC Board Chair Richard Montoni and NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg joined over 400 national business leaders and companies in signing an open letter to President Trump and Congress urging them to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and pass a permanent legislative solution for dreamers, who are 780,000 undocumented young people brought to the United States as children.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced today that the Trump administration will rescind the DACA program, phasing it out over the next six months in order to give Congress time to pass a legislative solution addressing the immigration status of the dreamers.
