WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte issued the following statement today on Congressman Denham’s discharge petition for Dreamers:
“For nearly eight months, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have made countless statements about the fate of Dreamers, acknowledging that their futures rely on congressional action. Today, Members of Congress have a clear opportunity to actually force a vote on legislation to protect these young people. It’s time for our elected officials to finally do their jobs and show voters where they stand. We urge every Member of Congress to sign onto this discharge petition, and stand up and vote.
“We also applaud Congressman Denham for his continued leadership toward finding a permanent legislative solution to protect Dreamers.”
