MoveOn Statement On Senate Immigration Debate
WASHINGTON - Statement from Corinne Ball, MoveOn Campaign Director:
“As the Senate is poised to start debate on the humanitarian crisis Donald Trump caused when he cruelly ended DACA, here’s what every sitting Senator should remember: Americans want the Dream Act—not cruel deals that go against basic American values. Bargaining with Dreamers’ lives, attempting to trade their ability to work and live freely in the country they call home, and further emboldening ICE to terrorize their communities and break up families is an unacceptable and immoral compromise. We elect Senators to not only stand against the policies that we abhor but to fight for the things that we believe in.
“It’s beyond time for the Senate to introduce and pass a bipartisan Dream Act, and MoveOn members will continue calling for and fighting for its passage until immigrant youth have the protections they so desperately need.”
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
The MoveOn family of organizations brings real Americans back into the political process. With over 3.2 million members across America – from carpenters to stay-at-home moms to business leaders – we work together to realize the progressive promise of our country. MoveOn is a service – a way for busy but concerned citizens to find their political voice in a system dominated by big money and big media.
