Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, and President Donald Trump are all on Twitter lying about thousands of Americans. They are referring to the people who were protected by DACA as "unchecked illegal immigration." This is repellent and racist, as well as dishonest (“Stephen Miller, immigration agitator and White House survivor, is at the center of the fight over ‘Dreamers,’” Jan. 21).
The Dreamers are as American as I am, except for a legal document which President Trump and Republican leaders promised to correct, which the majority of Americans want to see happen. My wife and I are federal employees who were directly hurt by the government shutdown, but we serve to protect people just like these DACA Dreamers. We demand that the Republican leadership pass the DREAM Act and live up to their promise.
And we expect our Sens. Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin, as well as Rep. John Sarbanes, to stand firm and hold them accountable for their dishonesty.
