Southern Border Region -- The Trump administration's Immigration Principles and Policies are not only immoral and outrageous, they are an affront to the nation's most basic values of equality and justice. The extreme measures proposed by the White House threaten the future of Dreamers -- 1 out 5 of which live in border communities -- and further militarizes the border region, threatening the safety of millions of people who call the borderlands home.
"The Trump Administration's misguided attempt to use
Dreamers, and specifically Border Dreamers, as bargaining chips to further militarize the southern border region is shameful. There is broad, bipartisan support for a clean Dream Act for a reason: it is the right thing to do. The President has an obligation to act in the interest of the people of the United States and not in continuing to promote divisive policies that undermine our safety and fail to ignore the contributions of immigrants to our nation."
