Congressman Correa Calls for Action to Protect our Dreamers

We need to pass a meaningful immigration reform now

Washington, D.C. — Today Congressman Lou Correa (D-CA) issued the following statement to call for action to protect and support Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients on the uncertainty of the programs future. Congressman Correa urges Congress to pass meaningful immigration reform now that will provide DACA recipients a pathway to citizenship. 

"A legal battle in the courts is once again putting recipients of the DACA program in jeopardy. Dreamers are essential to our workforce serving in our armed services, medical professions, and as educators. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States heavily relied on our DACA recipients to be frontline workers, and they deserve a pathway to citizenship. Our Dreamers continue to follow the law, work hard, and pay taxes. We cannot continue to leave them worried about their futures in the only place they call home. I will keep advocating and working toward passing comprehensive immigration reform that will protect our Dreamers.”
