Pelosi Statement in Support of a Clean DREAM Act


San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement in support of a clean DREAM Act, which she passed in the House as Speaker in 2010:

“In October, the President wrongly decided to terminate DACA.  Since that time, the President has constantly said he supports DACA.

“The confusion of the last week has clouded the debate, but what is clear is that we must insist upon a clean DREAM Act, which is supported overwhelmingly by the American people, has bipartisan support in Congress and must be enacted in January.

“The bipartisan Senate proposal put forward by Senators Graham and Durbin recognizes the importance of protecting our DREAMers.”
