U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman should especially be commended for reaching across the aisle to support Dreamers. In Colorado, there are currently 17,000 young people stuck in limbo and they deserve the certainty of a permanent legislative solution. These hardworking young adults are part of our communities and contribute to our economy.
I applaud Rep. Coffman for signing on to the Dream Act - legislation that would achieve the stability these young people need by continuing protections for DACA recipients and creating a pathway to citizenship.
Unfortunately, we're still waiting for Colorado's remaining congressional Republicans to show similar leadership. I hope they will follow Rep. Coffman's example by putting partisan politics aside and doing what's right for these young Dreamers.
