Governor Chris Sununu is weighing in on the Trump Administration’s decision to repeal DACA, or the so-called “dreamers” program.

He says his hope is that undocumented children living here can continue to contribute to society.

“I think the president sent a clear initiative, told Congress to get to work, find a solution here. Something that I’ve always said is, children shouldn’t be accountable for actions of their parents. They’re here, and I think Congress has to get to work and find a real solution.”

The Obama-era initiative shielded as many as 800,000 undocumented children, including an estimated 400 in New Hampshire.
