House Legislation A Disappointing Step That Would Hurt DREAMers

Posted by on August 01, 2014.

Today House Republicans voted overwhelmingly to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and effectively restart deportations of DREAMers.

The humanitarian crisis on the border continues to show the critical need for real and lasting immigration reform. Unfortunately, instead of taking the time to debate and vote on meaningful reform today, we saw the majority of House Republicans take a disappointing step in the wrong direction by even considering this legislation, which would hurt DREAMers and could restart deportations of these hardworking young people.

Americans of diverse backgrounds across the political spectrum agree that DREAMers - who were brought here at a young age and have known only our country as their home - contribute to our communities and our economy. In order to truly secure our border, create American jobs, and boost our economy, House Republicans must work toward a permanent legislative solution. We urge them to pass legislation to fix our broken immigration system as soon as possible.
