Atlanta, Ga — The Georgia Chamber supports the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The U.S. healthcare system relies on over 27,000 medical workers that come through the DACA program, making this win critical to the nation’s ability to serve its population during a global pandemic.

“DACA provides critical and essential workforce to our state and national economies every day,” said Chris Clark, President & CEO of the Georgia Chamber. “We thank the Supreme Court for their wisdom to uphold the values of our nation and strengthen our position for swift economic recovery and we hope that Congress will move to permanently address this issue.”

The Georgia Chamber will continue its support of programs that treat all Georgians equitably and enhance opportunities for a more resilient and inclusive future. The next look at these efforts will be during the Chamber’s Future of Manufacturing two-part virtual series on June 23 and 24, 2020.
