The Resistance is working. Last week Sean Elsbernd of Senator Feinstein’s office told us that David Valadao and Jeff Denham are among the Republicans pushing Congress to pass immigration reform.
How did this happen? Thanks to you and others like you, Valadao and Denham face tough re-election battles in their California districts. Now they are willing to talk about protection for our DACA kids.
Better late than never! Polls have shown that a large majority of Americans support a path to citizenship for DACA recipients. Not Paul Ryan, though. He’s pushing back.
This could be the issue that sees Ryan lose control of Congress. Denham has rounded up enough Republicans, and almost all Democrats, to sign a discharge petition that would bypass Ryan. We’re five votes shy of forcing a vote on DACA.
It’s a rare win-win-win! Our pressure is forcing a Republican Congressman to do the right thing. His actions are embarrassing Paul Ryan, and reinvigorating support for young people in the DACA program.
