Thousands Rally to Demand Congress Protect Immigration Programs

HeadlineDec 07, 2017
 h09 tps protest

Thousands rallied on Capitol Hill Wednesday, demanding Congress stop its rollback of temporary protected status for thousands of Haitians and Nicaraguans and pass the DREAM Act before the end of the year. This is Nicaraguan immigrant and TPS recipient Eugenia Sandoval.

Eugenia Sandoval: “This is a country we’re told is about opportunities. It’s a country, it’s said, that’s about diversity of cultures. And that’s what President Trump and Congress ought to respect—the diversity—because all together, we form a rainbow, which is what makes this country beautiful.”

We’ll have more on the DREAM Act later in the broadcast.
