Se. Chris Coons met with a group of Dreamers in Washington to listen to their concerns and to discuss the debate on immigration.
“As young people who have lived their whole lives in the United States, who were brought here as children by their parents, they deserve a chance to be a part of the American Dream, and, I’m looking forward this week on the floor of the Senate to try move forward my bipartisan bill with Senator John McCain of Arizona,” said Coons. “It’s based on a nearly identical bill out of the House that Congressman Hurd and Congressman Aguilar introduced that has 54 cosponsors—equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats. It deals with border security, it deals with strengthening our border, and it deals with a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers. That’s the kind of balanced and bipartisan solution that I’m hoping is successful here this week.
“I want to thank these great young people for sharing with me their experience, their vision, and their hopes. Let’s get this done this week, folks. Thank you.”
