    It saddens me to see hispanic members of legislatures doing the lift on this. Any decent minded person of any political stripe should be urging action NOW from Congress to help not just dreamers but their families. When are we going to get RI’s Speaker and Senate President on the record… why hasn’t any member of our Cong delegation led on this? Meanwhile I seem a member of the Republican Party leadership here doing the opposite and posing for pictures with immigrant hater and race baiters Steve King and Michelle Malkin.
