augie arbulu.jpgStatement from One Detroit partner and Michigan Department of Civil Rights President, Agustin "Augie" Arbulu, on today’s announcement that the federal government will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“The federal action announced today to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will have a direct impact on thousands of individuals who live, work and study in Michigan. Not only will this change put people at risk of legal action and deportation, I am concerned that it will trigger an increase in hate crimes and bias incidents directed at these individuals – acts that are superficially aimed at their ‘legal status’ but are, in reality, based on race, ethnicity and national origin. Discrimination of this sort is in direct violation of Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act, and the Department of Civil Rights is ready to investigate any act that violates the legally-protected civil rights of Michigan residents.”
