Ohio’s US Congressional Delegation on Ending DACA, Passing Legislation + Our Demands

Senator Sherrod Brown (D) President Trump promised to go after violent criminals, not innocent children. We should not be targeting young people who are working, going to school, paying taxes and contributing to this country – the country they grew up in and the only home they’ve ever known.” Brown supports the Dream Act. He also supported the bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the Senate in 2013 to increase border security and create a path to citizenship for those willing to work for it – like those under the DACA program. @SenSherrodBrown

Senator Rob Portman (R) Those in the DACA program are here through no fault of their own, and for many this is the only country they know. I agree that Congress should act rather than continue the Obama administration’s unconstitutional executive action. I support bipartisan efforts to find a permanent solution that will allow those in the DACA program to stay here and continue to contribute to our society. I believe we can and should respect the rule of law while also dealing with this issue in a humane and compassionate way, and that’s the approach I believe the administration and members of both parties in Congress should take as we look at legislative solutions on this issue. @senrobportman

Rep. Steve Chabot (R-1) Although I am sympathetic to the plight of those who were brought to this country as children, I think their situation is best addressed within the scope of broader immigration reform. We want people to come to this country, but we want them to do so legally.  By once again rewarding those who broke the rules while those who follow our laws continue to wait in line, we are sending the wrong message.  We are telling those who want to come here that they are better off ignoring our laws than trying to do it the right way. Supports immigration reform that “streamlines the legal immigration process, strengthens enforcement of our laws, and enhances border security.” @RepSteveChabot

Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-2) DACA was a controversial and unconstitutional executive mandate. What we need is legislative action, which comes from the American people through their representatives in Congress. While it has long been, and still is, my position that our top priorities should be securing our porous southern border and developing a legal immigration system that is beneficial to all Americans and those seeking to become Americans, I also believe we as a nation should not hold children legally accountable for the actions of their parents. For decades, Congress has abdicated its responsibility to address the status of those in this country illegally. It’s time to tackle these tough issues and work together towards long-term solutions that can be passed into law and signed by the president. @RepBradWenstrup

Joyce Beatty (D-3) I do not support President Trump’s decision to rescind DACA. The Dreamers are committed to making America great and are law-abiding, patriotic, innocent young people contributing to their community. Now is the time for Republicans and Democrats to do what is right, as opposed to green-lighting President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.

Jim Jordan (R-4) Obama put us in position we are in 2day w/ unconstitutional #DACA exec order – it’s time 4 Congress 2 do it’s job One of my favorite jobs as a representative of the Fourth District is participating in naturalization ceremonies for immigrants who have worked hard, followed the law and are becoming citizens of the U.S. We need to make sure that anyone who wants to come to the U.S. follows the law, and we do that by enforcing our current immigration laws and reforming them where needed, and through securing the border, not through a blanket amnesty program that insults the hard-working immigrants who followed the rules. @Jim_Jordan

Bill Johnson (R-6) Congressman Bill Johnson issued a statement saying that if President Trump had not acted on Tuesday, DACA would have been struck down by the courts. We are a nation of laws. We were founded on the principle of checks and balances. Had we enforced America’s immigration laws from the start, we would not be in this situation now.” @RepBillJohnson

Warren Davidson (R-8) #DACA. I appreciate the thoughtful comments to my previous post. The statement I made in that post led many people to falsely attribute all sorts of things not even mentioned, so here are my actual views on a viable solution. Congress has failed to solve problems and change laws on a number of key issues, including this one. This is a complex issue, but the premise that these “dreamers” should be treated compassionately is easy; of course they should. However, past efforts to help them have broken down when there is a genuine effort to solve the root cause: illegal immigration. Many want to simply do the easier work of helping these children of illegal immigrants, but that will leave a next generation stuck in the same situation. Addressing DACA without correcting the root cause does not solve the problem. For example, the 1986 amnesty program may have actually increased illegal immigration, enlarging the current population of “dreamers”. The 1986 “solution” was not a solution, thus the present situation. In my opinion, a comprehensive solution includes: 1) securing the border, 2) ending sanctuary cities, states and campuses, 3) ending birthright citizenship when neither parent is a U.S. citizen, 4) providing a path to citizenship for people (like these “dreamers”) who are personally innocent of breaking U.S. immigration law, 5) punishing criminal illegal aliens, and 6) massively simplifying the legal immigration process. Immigrants should always be welcome in the USA, but immigration must be legal, secure, and integrate new citizens into America’s culture. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the House to help solve the problem comprehensively, and hope the Senate will prove helpful. @WarrenDavidson

Marcy Kaptur (D-9) The President should not threaten the legal status of Dreamers. The United States is the only home many Dreamers have ever known.  If DACA is rescinded without a legislative fix, more families and communities will be ripped apart. Keeping families together is the right thing to do. Congress should act swiftly, in a bipartisan manner, to codify the DACA program into law.  We must stand up for these young people whose economic and cultural contributions make our Nation stronger.

Patrick “Pat” Tiberi (R-12) DACA is “one of the most egregious examples of his executive overreach.” “As the son of immigrants who legally came to the United States from Italy, I have seen the success story of legal immigration firsthand.  In order to ensure this country remains a beacon of hope we must adhere to the Constitution, which empowers Congress to write immigration laws, not the executive branch.” The six-month window for Congress to act is “an opportunity for us to identify needed solutions that are fair and orderly for Dreamers who didn’t choose to break our laws and know no other home than America.”

David Joyce (R-14) DACA was an abuse of executive power when it was created. The president was correct to give Congress time to solve the issue. It is now up to Congress to come up with a bi-partisan solution that should include stronger border security and reforms to the immigration system. @RepDaveJoyce

Steve Stivers (R-15) While we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws. Moving forward, I support a legislative solution to fix our broken immigration system and facilitate economic growth. Trump’s move “puts the power back with Congress, where it belongs. Congress has six months to take action to create a permanent, legal and orderly immigration system – which includes addressing DACA recipients.”
