SENATE WILL VOTE ON PROPOSAL BEFORE FEBRUARY 8

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Several local pro-immigrant organizations have rejected president Trump’s plan to grant citizenship to 1.8 undocumented individuals who arrived while they were children. According to his proposal, these individuals would have access to citizenship after 10 or 12 years, after complying with certain requisites, like having a job, an education and “good moral character”. This protection for the Dreamers would be granted in exchange for 25 thousand million dollars to increase border security and other changes in the immigration system.

The number of 1.8 million that Trump is proposing, surpasses the 690,000 Dreamers currently protected under DACA. “However, that would happen at the expense of extremely harmful policies, that would reduce legal immigration to the point when in the U.S. there was open discrimination based on race and national origin,” explained Jennifer Piper, spokesperson for American Friends Service Committee (AFSC).

Two Dreamers

Ulises Venegas, president of United Leaders in Higher Education (UHLE), defined the proposal as opposed to basic national values. “In exchange for allowing us to pursue our dreams, Trump and the radicals insist that we must accept permanent separation from our families. I ask senators Bennet and Gardner to take a position of leadership and not allow that our lives and our parent’s lives be used as a negotiation token,” said Venegas.

Meanwhile, Cristian Solano, spokesperson for CIRC, remains skeptical as of the number of undocumented immigrants that would benefit from this citizenship plan. “We are waiting for details on the proposal, but I am sure they wanted to use that number to try to hide all the other points of the reform,” explains Solano. This young Dreamer reminded us that the original “Dream Act,” would favor about 3.2 million people. “Trump doesn’t want to negotiate, he just wants to impose his agenda,” he concluded.
