"The Supreme Court's decision preventing the Trump Administration from ending DACA protections for young immigrants is a tremendous victory for Dreamers and for all Americans. It affirms the fundamental values of inclusion, fairness and equality that this nation was founded upon.

"The Trump Administration failed to give an adequate reason for ending DACA because there isn't one - it was just another purely partisan assault to advance this administration's anti-immigrant agenda and pander to his political base.

"While President Trump has continuously attacked our immigrant communities and worked to roll back critical protections for hundreds of thousands of people who came here as children and who call this nation home, New York has led the way by taking unprecedented actions to protect and defend immigrants and ensure they have access to the same opportunities as all New Yorkers. We will continue to stand up for the rights of immigrants and all New Yorkers, and we will never stop fighting for equality."
