"The Dream and Promise Act of 2019 is a milestone in our fight for a just and humane immigration system. Dreamers and TPS recipients are our students, neighbors, parents, doctors, teachers and most importantly, Americans, all but on paper. With this historic legislation, we are honoring their courage and ensuring they can continue to enrich our nation with their patriotism and determination to succeed.
Today, we owe our immigrant families our gratitude. Thank you for sharing your hopes, families, and communities with us and speaking out about the anxiety and fear you face. You demonstrate not only the best of the American spirit, but of the human spirit. It was an honor to cast my vote for the Dream and Promise Act to affirm our shared vision of an inclusive, prosperous, and just nation.”
