DACA Update

 Congressional Democrats will also hold a press conference to "highlight the essential national security skills that Dreamers offer the U.S. military." Roughly 900 DACA enrollees currently serve in the military through a pilot program to attract enlistees with critical language and professional skills. In attendance will be Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), and Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), Salud Carbajal (D-Calif.), and Ted Lieu (D-Calif.). The event takes place at 11:30 a.m. in the Capitol Building, S-115. Watch a livestream here.
