April 19, 2018 Hoyer Statement on Bipartisan Queen-of-the-Hill Rule on DACA Legislation
April 10, 2018 Tweet - "I said to press that I disagree with @RealDonaldTrump's decision to deploy troops to the border. While we believe in secure borders, this is a distraction from the real issues we need to address, including solving the DACA crisis he created."
March 23, 2018 Tweet - "A few reminders, Mr. President: 1. You ended #DACA & created this crisis. 2. You've rejected every bipartisan solution put forward to #ProtectDREAMers. 3. @SpeakerRyan & GOP leaders won't allow a vote on DACA legislation."
March 22, 2018 Tweet - "Republicans brought a 2,200-page #omnibus to the Floor in less than 24 hrs. It violates every rule they've set for themselves & is not fiscally responsible. But what is more egregious is that the GOP continues to dissemble on promises to address #DACA. 1/2"
March 21, 2018 Tweet - "I also told press that Republicans have had more than 6 months to get their job done and fund the government. We'll see what they put forward, but they need to drop poison pill riders from the omnibus funding bill if they want Dem support."

March 6, 2018 Tweet - ".@SpeakerRyan, the President's March 5 #DACA deadline has now passed. Every day Congress fails to act, #DREAMers lose #DACA protections. @HouseGOP cannot continue to ignore this issue. Bring bipartisan legislation to the Floor and let the House work its will."
March 5, 2018 Tweet - ".@realDonaldTrump's deadline to address #DACA has arrived with no action by the GOP Congress. Dems have offered bipartisan proposals to #protectDREAMers, but POTUS has dismissed them & @HouseGOP has refused to bring any measures to the Floor. 1/2"

Feb. 18, 2018 Tweet - "I had the honor of meeting the family of Jorge Garcia, who was brought here as a child & lived in the U.S. for 30 yrs & was deported by ICE in Jan. I spoke with his wife Cindy & children Soleil & Jorge & it was heartbreaking to hear how this family has been split apart. 1/2"
Feb. 16, 2018 Tweet - "President Trump, you ended DACA. You created this crisis. You continue to refuse bipartisan compromises. Now that your proposal failed in the Senate, it's time to show leadership and work with both parties to #protectDREAMers."
