RP266: DACA Deepdive…#DefendTheDream

51 minutes

Rays Talk Show Episode 266: Host Ray Collazo is joined by Immigration Policy expert Carlos Guevara of UnidosUS to take a deepdive into the state of DACA/Dream Act policy. Collazo and co-host Leo Perales quiz Carlos on the state of play in Washington around potential Dream Act legislation potentially being shoe horned into current Budget/Tax Packages. What leverage do immigrant activists now have as the debt ceiling deadline approaches? Will Democrats stand by the Dreamers during these negotiations? What can we do now to have our voice heard in this debate during this critical time.

Carlos also shares special events taking place in Washington this week, including a Facebook Live with Senator Bob Menendez on UnidosUS Facebook Page and rallies being led by dreamers.

Listen in for the update on the status of hundreds of thousands of Central American immigrants who are currently here under a tenuous Temporary Protection Status TPS). Much love for our friends from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras and Nicaragua who are fighting for a legislative solution to this issue.
