Our response to President Trump’s latest immigration proposal:
The current proposal to build a wall, increase deportations, and keep families apart is a disaster.
As an organization that trains people to run for office, we know that politics matters. But people matter more. Congress seems to have forgotten this. And the white supremacists in the White House were never serious about a clean DREAM act.
We need an immigration bill that is clear and clean, that encourages and supports young people and their families rather than holds them ransom.
Our communities can’t be bribed, and neither should Congress.
