Mayor Faulconer urges Congress to pass legislation to protect Dreamers

Letter seeking DACA vote includes 5 Pa. House Republicans Local DACA recipients looking to legislators to pass 'Clean Dream Act'

The 30 Republican signatories write, "We all agree that our border must be enforced, our national security defended, and our broken immigration system reformed, but in this moment, we must address the urgent matter before us in a balanced approach that does not harm valuable sectors of our economy nor the lives of these hard-working young people". President Trump has given Congress until March 5 to find a permanent solution for the more than 700,000 DACA recipients nationwide - 33,000 of whom reside in Florida - or else they will run the risk of being deported.

This year, the Trump-Pence administration announced the cruel decision to end DACA and created an arbitrary deadline for Congress to impose a legislative fix.

The vigil on behalf of children known as "Dreamers" is sponsored by Puerta Abierta, an immigrant ministry run by Oakland Baptist Church in Rock Hill, said Blake Hart, who runs the Puerta Abierta ministry at the church.

"America can continue to be a nation of laws, border security, and controlled immigration".

Dent, whose 15th District includes Lehigh County and part of Northampton County, said during an MSNBC interview last week that he has "no problem" with including provisions to resolve the Dreamers situation in the spending bills needed to be approved this month to keep the government running.

The Colcom Foundation presently provides generous donations to these organizations, and according to the Center for New Community's resource Who's Behind the Plot Against DACA, have since 2006, pumped more than $53 million into the anti-immigrant movement. Every day, more and more dreamers are having their DACA status expire. "Reaching across the aisle to protect DACA recipients before the holidays is the right thing to do".
