Washington, D.C. — Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement marking six months of President Trump’s cruel DACA policy and of Congressional Republicans’ inaction:

“Six months since President Trump made the cruel, cowardly decision to end DACA, America’s patriotic Dreamers still are forced to live under a cloud of fear and uncertainty.

“House Republican leadership continues to brazenly reject the will of the American people, refusing to hold a vote on a bipartisan DREAM Act.  Every day of Republicans’ cynical inaction and obstruction, more Dreamers lose their DACA protections.

“Protecting Dreamers means honoring the highest ideals of America.  Their courage, optimism and great dignity stir our nation’s conscience and inspire us all. 

“House Republicans must stop cravenly using the lives and future of these young patriots as bargaining chips, and immediately bring a bipartisan DREAM Act to the Floor for a vote.”
