Another Republican Announces Their Support For The DREAM Act
Donald Trump decided to officially announce the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Tuesday. His decision has already faced a backlash from members of both parties.
Almost immediately following Jeff Sessions’ announcement, Sens. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin made a public announcement urging Congress to pass the DREAM Act by the end of September. Now, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) joins in supporting the DREAM ACt.
“Children who came to this country without documentation, through no fault of their own, must have the opportunity to remain here lawfully,” Gardner said in a statement.
Gardner had initially opposed DACA, but had a change of heart while still serving in the House of Representatives in 2014.
If Congress passes the DREAM Act and both the Senate and Trump approve, Dreamers will have the chance to live in this country legally permanently.
