MAR 23, DNC Message Guidance
The president continues to falsely blame Democrats for the lack of progress on a deal for Dreamers, but the country will not forget that he was the one who decided to end DACA. And every time a bipartisan deal to protect Dreamers was on the table, he shot it down.
President Obama created the DACA program because this country is the only home American Dreamers know. They contribute to our economy and their communities, pay taxes, and work as teachers, first responders, and service members.
Because of Trump and Republicans, American Dreamers are at risk of being forced back into the shadows, losing their jobs, businesses, scholarships, and communities.
Trump’s willingness to hold American Dreamers hostage to further his hateful agenda is not only against everything Democrats stand for, it runs counter to the values this country was founded on.
Democrats believe our diversity is our greatest strength. We will always fight for hardworking families and a smart, sensible immigration system.
Democrats know that protecting these young immigrants strengthens our economy and families across the country.
