ICYMI: DREAMER COALITION LETTER FROM THE LIBRE INITIATIVE COVERED BY THE NEVADA INDEPENDENT

Posted by

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, The Nevada Independent covered a coalition letter led by The LIBRE Initiative calling for prompt congressional action to provide permanent relief for the Dreamers.

The Nevada Independent covers the Dreamer coalition letter from The LIBRE Initiative and others:

“Leaders of 10 Latino groups, including several prominent conservative organizations, are sending a letter Monday to Republican and Democratic leaders in the House and Senate to call for a bipartisan compromise that would offer permanent legal status to DREAMers.”

“Although proposals have been advanced to provide temporary or renewable protections, or to address status through unilateral executive action, these measures are inadequate,” the letter said. “They can be revoked, canceled, or struck down through court decisions. Only permanent statutory action by Congress can allow the Dreamers, their families, and their communities to plan for the future.”

“We are hopeful that you will incorporate Dreamer protections into the omnibus funding bill that is expected to pass Congress in the next few weeks,” the letter concluded.”

“According to the group United We Dream, an average of 122 DACA beneficiaries have been losing their protections each day since the Trump administration ended it in September.”
