Entertainment Software Association’s Statement on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program

WASHINGTON – September 5, 2017 – The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which represents the US video game industry, issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s call for congressional action on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“ESA supports swift congressional action on DACA. Our nation’s competitiveness depends on creating opportunities for all, including giving today’s Dreamers a chance to be among tomorrow’s innovators. Federal legislation to preserve DACA honors our American values and is sound policy from both an economic and humanitarian perspective.”

ESA offers a wide range of services to interactive entertainment software publishers, including conducting business and consumer research; providing legal and policy analysis and advocacy on First Amendment, intellectual property, and technology/e-commerce issues; managing a global content protection program; owning and operating E3; and representing video game industry interests in federal and state government relations.
