It’s nice to finally see some sort of response to the continued detention and deportation of immigrant youth. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV) and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (IL), along with 20 other Senators, signed on to a powerful letter sent to the Obama Administration today, imploring him to use his executive powers to stop the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible students.
Both my California senators, Senator Feinstein and Senator Boxer, signed on to the letter.
You can view the letter below, courtesy America’s Voice:
Senator Gillibrand (NY) posted this as a press release on her site this afternoon and now it has mysteriously disappeared. I hope it was not taken down due to another gag order from the Obama Administration.
