Himes Statement on New Immigration Rules

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) released the following statement regarding the Department of Homeland Security's announcement that it will no longer seek to deport undocumented young people who pose no security threat, also known as DREAMers:

"I applaud the President for making the right decision to end the horrendous prospect that DREAM children will be deported from the only country they know. I believe in an America that rewards those who play by the rules, but our broken immigration system overlooks the special circumstances faced by the children of illegal immigrants. These sensible changes to our immigration policy clarify that our priority lies with deporting those undocumented immigrants who pose a very real security threat -- not those who are here because of a decision their parents made for them. As a supporter of the DREAM Act, I will continue to support common-sense proposals that ensure a path to citizenship for our nation's best and brightest undocumented students."
