Senator Durbin: “The Stories Of DREAMers Tell You Why We Need To #SaveDACA”

 

Sen. Dick Durbin continued his ongoing efforts to share the stories of DACA recipients, last Friday lifting up the story of Javier.

Like many other DREAMers, Javier didn’t know he was undocumented until he tried to apply for financial assistance in order to attend college. Without DACA, higher education would have remained out-of-reach for Javier. Now he is now a Harvard sophomore majoring in computer science.

Sen. Durbin has shared numerous DACA stories like these (click here for more), and last week announced that he and Sen. Lindsey Graham will introduce the Bridge Act, which if passed would provide “provisional protected status” for DACA youth.
