“For far too long, elected officials on both sides have failed to successfully unite and work on this issue.”

As you meet to develop solutions before the upcoming spending deadline on February 15th, we urge you to come together and deliver bipartisan legislation that pairs the certainty Dreamers need going forward with funds to enhance border security.”


“Despite our differences on important policy issues, we are joining together now to endorse this approach. The time is right to act. We urge lawmakers and the president to set aside partisan concerns and lead on this important goal immediately.”
