Well, the Republicans did it–they crafted some political bills to attack child refugees and added a “supplemental” attack on the DREAMers who have qualified for DACA. Congressman Luis Gutierrez has one helluva response.
The Senate will not support it and the President has stated he would veto it if it did come to his desk. So, political theater? Pretty much.
I’ll say it again: Mr. President, sign executive orders expanding DACA to families, stop your deportation machine, and provide lawyers for child refugees–at the very least!
UPDATE from FIEL:
FIEL STATEMENT: in the next couple of hours and days you will hear that the US house of Representatives has voted on a measure to stop DACA (Deferred Action). This doesn’t meant ANYTHING. AT THIS TIME THERE IS NO CHANGE TO THE DACA PROGRAM. PEOPLE CAN STILL APPLY AND RENEW. This is just the Republican Party playing political games trying to scare DREAMers and their families. If you all have any questions you can call our office or come by tomorrow: -FIEL
Anuncio de FIEL: En las proximas hora y dias estaran escuchando que la Casa de Representantes en los Estados Unidos voto en una medida para quitar la DACA (Accion Diferida) Esto no se ignifica NADA.
