DACA’s repeal would reduce the nation’s gross domestic product by $433.4 billion over the next decade, including by $250 million in Ohio alone, the city’s informal resolution states, citing estimates by the Center for American Progress.
The proposed resolution states the city opposes any federal action that rescinds or “degrades” the program, and the city supports giving “Dreamers” permanent protection and a path to permanent legal status through the proposed DREAM Act.
If approved, a copy of the resolution will be sent to U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, and U.S. Rep. Michael Turner, R-Dayton, who represents the 10th District.
