Chairman Coleman on Protecting DACA Recipients

HOUSTON — Today, January 29, 2018 the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce held a press conference calling on national leaders to provide a clear path to citizenship for all DREAMers. Chairman Garnet Coleman (D-Houston) released the following statement:

“I join the Houston Hispanic Chamber's call for Congressional action on DACA. It is wrong to deport individuals who were brought here by no fault of their own and lived here nearly their entire lives. They are as American as anyone born here. We need a clean DACA bill passed that protects current and future recipients. I support a pathway to citizenship for all DREAMers, as they are the future teachers, doctors, and professionals. They are a part of what makes Texas great.”
