Statement from Rep. Catherine Miranda regarding deferred action for childhood arrivals application process




STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Today Rep. Catherine Miranda, D-Phoenix (District 16), released the following statement regarding the deferred action for childhood arrivals process.



"This week begins the application process for DREAM Act students on deferred action. Up to 800,000 young talented and educated men and women will have an opportunity to apply for work permits. The injection of these well-trained, well-educated workers into our national economy potentially can drive this country toward a new level of prosperity.



“At a time when we import doctors, engineers and computer experts from India and China, we need to consider the option of growing our own well-trained, well-educated workforce and we must fully utilize the expertise of DREAM Act students. It's nationally recognized that the United States has an aging population that presents a unique economic challenge in the history of our country. Immigrant labor both documented and undocumented can compliment the labor needs of this country.



“Let's begin our new economic revival and embrace the potential contribution that DREAM Act students can make to our nation."
