CHC Chair Statement on Legislative Fix for Dreamers
Jan 13, 2018
Washington, D.C. – The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chair Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) issued the following statement on the current state of a legislative fix for Dreamers:
“Despite the President’s attempts to derail bipartisan Congressional efforts to protect Dreamers, the work toward a permanent and sensible solution for Dreamers by January 19th continues in the House and Senate. However, the Dreamer issue is a discrete, narrow matter and should be handled as such.
“I am confident that if we continue working in a bipartisan manner, Congress will find a solution that protects Dreamers, enhances border security, and reflects the values of the CHC by the end of next week. Now, Congress must rise above denigrating terminology, petty politics, and get to work because there is absolutely no time to waste.”
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), founded in December 1976, is organized as a Congressional Member organization, governed under the Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives. The CHC is dedicated to voicing and advancing, through the legislative process, issues affecting Hispanics in the United States, Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories.
