HOUSTON, Texas — A Texas-based amnesty group called the plan by President Donald Trump to tie border security and immigration enforcement to a congressional bill to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program a “ransom note.” The group demands a clean bill issuing amnesty to approximately 800,000 of the so-called “DREAMers.”
“Immigrant youth will not be held hostage by the racist mass deportation wishlist of the White House,” United We Dream’s Executive Director Julieta Garibay said in a statement provided to Breitbart Texas. “The consequences of their anti-immigrant agenda would have inhumane and immoral consequences for Texas, especially those living along the border.”
“Last week, immigrant youth across Texas and in DC took action at the offices of members of Congress because our lives are at stake,” Garibay continued. “Reps Will Hurd, John Culberson, Pete Sessions and Bill Flores must co-sponsor the Dream Act of 2017 and commit to pass it by December. Republicans created this for themselves when Trump rescinded the DACA program, and it is morally corrupt to coerce immigrant youth into taking Sessions’ wish list in exchange for the Dream Act.
