"Environmental Defense Fund is dedicated to building a healthier and more just world where people – especially those most vulnerable to public health and environmental harms – and nature can prosper together. That is why we welcome today's Supreme Court decision keeping the Dreamers program intact.

"This decision benefits not only the over 700,000 Dreamers who came here as children and are now adults making vital contributions to our nation -- including thousands of healthcare workers on the frontlines of the tragic coronavirus pandemic; it benefits all of our communities. This is a significant step toward a more just society, one that lets everyone live with dignity, rewards and encourages hard work and innovation and keeps families whole. Let's all work together to find a permanent solution for Dreamers as also we work to create a healthier and more equitable future for all."
