GreenLatinos Stands in Solidarity with Dreamers, Urges Congressional Republicans to avert a #TrumpShutdown

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- GreenLatinos released the following statement on a potential government shutdown:

“GreenLatinos commends and supports the members of Congress who are standing by Dreamers, the 800,000 inspiring young adults who are going to school, working, taking care of their families, defending their communities, and contributing to the future of America.

The Trump Administration and Congressional Republican leadership still have the ability to support a bipartisan budget that does not sacrifice the future of Dreamers, destroy our land through the funding of a destructive border wall, put at risk the health of our nation's children by not funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and play games with the lives of Puerto Ricans who are still without water and electricity.

We will be relentless in our defense of those who are simply seeking a better life for themselves and their families. We demand that Republican Leadership and the Trump Administration pass a budget that protects Dreamers and safeguards our families, our health, our land, and our environment.”
