Some Democrats Join Deportation Caucus

"Senate Dems threw undocumented youth under the bus AGAIN. There are enough votes now to extended government funding to January 19th with some Dem votes. In the meantime, more and more Dreamers are losing their protection," reports Erika Andiola, undocumented American and Political Director of Our Revolution.

Who is responsible? The Deportation Caucus: 
  • Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
  • Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH)
  • Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
  • Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)
  • Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI)
  • Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-MO)
  • Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
  • Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) 
  • Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE)
  • Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO)
  • Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA)
  • Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NV)
  • Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) 
  • Sen. Chris Coons (D-CT)
January 19th may be the last opportunity to force the DREAM Act before March 5, when all DACA protections expire. Shame on the Democrats who caved, but we'll remember what they failed to do and we'll keep on fighting.
And, of course, the entire Republican majority,

To the organizers, the activists, the supporters who fought back, thank you a thousand times.

To the Dreamers whose futures hang in uncertainty, we are are with you. The struggle continues.
In solidarity,
