Congress Should Not Trade One Injustice For Another: Approve A Clean DREAM Act, Reject Trump's Wall

4 hours ago

Commentary: President Trump created a crisis over DACA by rescinding the directive that protected from deportation thousands of undocumented immigrants brought here as children. Now he is holding them hostage, demanding that Congress give him $25 billion for border security, including his “beautiful” wall, in exchange for not rounding up Dreamers and sending them into exile.

That’s a deal that Congress should not only reject, but condemn in the strongest possible terms for the sinister choice that it is.

“It’s déjà vu all over again in America. Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos are at it again. They are playing politics with the lives of millions of students and working families with their latest reckless and misguided budget proposal, which is nearly identical to what Congress rejected last year.
