Last night, Steve Pearce cast his vote to abandon DREAMers and leave these young immigrants without protection from deportation from the only country they’ve ever called home. While other Congressional Republicans took a stand and spoke out against their party for kicking the can down the road and failing to provide certainty to the DACA population, Pearce fell in line with his extreme partisan backers and leaving DREAMers in the cold and tearing families apart.
“Steve Pearce made crystal clear last night that he puts his extreme Washington political backers ahead of New Mexico’s DREAMers. He chose to tear families apart and break a promise,” said Richard Ellenberg, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico. “As the rest of New Mexico’s Congressional delegation stands strong to protect these young immigrants from deportation, Steve Pearce stands with Donald Trump.”
