Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

DREAM Action Coalition's Response to Release of Republican Reform Principles

Rating: 5 votes, 5.00 average.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 30, 2014


*** STATEMENT ***
** Let's withhold Judgement on Republican Immigration principles until legislation is introduced **


WASHINGTON DC- Earlier today, Republicans released their long awaited priniciples on immigration reform. The DREAM Action Coalition stated:

"The principles are not surprising. What will matter is the substance that will make up the legislation. Republicans are taking a step forward recognizing the need to modernize our outdated immigration system. However, the party must act swiftly to produce legislation and schedule votes to ensure we start the debate process.

Most importantly, Republicans will be warned not to produce legislation that solves a political problem rather than a policy problem by including poison pills like the SAFE Act, legislation that will empower local and state enforcement to enforce immigration law. States like Arizona and Alabama are already paying the high economic price of such failed legislation.

"We need to withhold judgement criticizing Republicans to give them an opportunity to work legislation, including their legalization and border security components. In the end, we have to wait for Republicans since the President's record deportations has undermined our negotiating capital by placing our community in fear of being separated from their family," said Erika Andiola, Co-director, Dream Action Coalition.





Dream Action Coalition serves as a voice for undocumented youth and lobbying arm of the dream movement. Our work ensures that undocumented youth are represented in the halls of power and are correctly and directly informed of the actions of Congress, Executive Agencies, and the Courts.
