Editorial Boards Stand with America’s DREAMers


The Trump Administration’s cruel, inhumane decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals has thrown the lives and futures of 800,000 DREAMers and their families into fearful disarray, chaos and uncertainty.

Editorial boards across the country have slammed the decision to terminate DACA and called on Congress to act swiftly to pass the DREAM Act and immediately protect our country’s courageous, patriotic DREAMers.  While House Republicans have acted three times this week to block an up-or-down vote, House Democrats will fight relentlessly to pass the DREAM Act.
