America's Voice En Español »
The letter below, from 22 Democratic Senators, was sent to President Obama this afternoon.
The Senators wrote that they “would support a grant of deferred action” and other measures to grant relief to qualified DREAM students. We’ll have more tomorrow, but wanted to post the letter once we saw it. America’s Voice shares the view that the President has the executive authority to protect DREAMers.
As you can see, a broad spectrum of the Democratic caucus signed the letter including leadership and even more conservative Senators, like Florida’s Bill Nelson, who is up for reelection in 2012.
