Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
3Rd Anniversary Of Daca Program June 23, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"The Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act with a strong bipartisan majority, 68 to 32. This bill would have provided a pathway to citizenship for DACA grantees and others similarly situated. But the House failed to act, and so here we are today without comprehensive immigration reform. Although we have not yet succeeded in fixing our broken immigration system through congressional action, at least the DACA Program provides some temporary reprieve for these young immigrants so that they do not live in constant fear of deportation."
Daca Anniversary June 18, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"If my Republican friends wish to change our immigration policies, they have a perfect vehicle, Mr. Speaker, for doing so: a comprehensive immigration reform bill supported, in my opinion, by a majority of the House of Representatives. Let’s bring such a bill to the floor so that we can fix our broken immigration system and create a pathway to citizenship for these DREAMers and others who have been living and working here for almost all their lives."
3Rd Anniversary Of Daca Program June 18, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Despite the steps this administration has taken, only legislation from Congress can solve the underlying problem of a very broken immigration system."
Now Is The Time For Immigration Reform June 17, 2015
Jim Costa, D-CA
"The bottom line is: we need a long-term fix for our broken immigration system. We need comprehensive immigration reform and an act of Congress, which is the only way we can currently fix this failing system."
Daca Has Given A Lifeline To Dreamers June 17, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"DACA has been a catalyst for so many aspiring Americans, but only Congress can fix our broken immigration system. I call on us to do so."
