Telemundo and Univision have taken a public stance against the announcement by the Trump Administration to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme.

dreamers univision 07 september 2017“Let’s be very clear – Dreamers are our students, soldiers, first responders, co-workers, neighbours, and friends,” stated Randy Falco, president and CEO of the leading Hispanic media group. “Here at Univision we will continue to stand by them, including those talented Dreamers working at our company to advance our mission of entertaining, informing, and empowering the Hispanic community and the rising American mainstream we serve.”

In a rarely-seen move to directly influence the US politics, he added “this is a call to Congress to fix this mess before the United States experiences the estimated $280 to $460 billion reduction in economic growth from the loss of Dreamers in our workforce, as estimated by some studies.”

From the side of NBCUniversal-owned Telemundo, a similar statement was released short after the Government’s decision to end the DACA programme was announced.
"Telemundo stands with the 800,000 Dreamers who are integral to the economy, culture and spirit of our nation.  We are disheartened by the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme.  We urge Congress to act swiftly to preserve the rights of these valuable members of our community,” pointed out the Hispanic media company.
