“While many DACA recipients will experience momentarily relief, the urgency of this decision reiterates the need to pass a permanent solution that codifies DACA and protects the lives of DACA recipients. The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) joins the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) in calling on a minimum of 10 Senate Republicans to join all Democrats to pass the House-passed bipartisan Dream and Promise Act out of the Senate and send to the President’s desk. We can not let politics get in the way of doing what is right — and our Dreamers cannot wait. We must be focused on modernizing our broken immigration system, keeping families together, strengthening our economy, providing pathways to citizenship, and living up to our nation's values of hope, opportunity, and the American dream. The soul of our nation is at stake, and this is a battle we can not afford to lose,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty.

The Caucus is Chaired by Congresswoman Joyce Beatty. As part of this commitment, the CBC has fought for the past 51 years to empower these citizens and address their legislative concerns.
