The backbone of the Democratic Party is nowhere to be found. Although Senator Bernie Sanders and 15 Democrats in the Senate demonstrated leadership by voting against the government reopening without a clean DREAM Act, the majority of Senate Democrats showed their lack of courage. This afternoon, Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the “arrangement” he and Republican leaders had come to: Democrats vote to reopen the government in exchange for more empty promises from the Republicans.
Too many Senate Democrats betrayed every promise made to Dreamers. We are disappointed to say the least, but we are going to keep fighting to win a clean DREAM Act.
It only took three days for the Democrats to fold - add your name and join the fight to pass a clean DREAM Act today.
