Bryan Caforio Statement on Trump Administration Ending DAPA 

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Yesterday, the Trump Administration rescinded the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). Created by President Obama in 2014, DAPA would have shielded about 4 million parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents from deportation. Congressman Knight yet again falls in line with Trump on this issue and has said, “I have no problem telling a family, ‘Your child can stay […] but you’re going to have to go.'”

Bryan Caforio responded, “Tearing families apart is not the answer to our broken immigration system. We must work towards comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, and Trump’s heartless decision is a giant step backwards. I will continue to stand with my friends and neighbors in our community as we fight for families throughout the 25th District.” 

Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
