Immigrant Activists Flood Capitol Hill, Demanding a “Clean DREAM Act”

HeadlineJan 19, 2018

The looming government shutdown came as protesters continued to flood lawmakers’ offices on Capitol Hill demanding passage of a so-called clean DREAM Act that would grant legal status to DACA recipients without concessions for funding for the border wall or enhanced border security. On Thursday, members of the group United We Dream—many of them DACA recipients—chanted “Undocumented and unafraid” outside the office of Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner. A hundred DACA recipients lose their status each day. As the deadline looms tonight, President Trump heads to Mar-a-Lago to play golf and celebrate the first anniversary of his inauguration.
