WE SPOKE WITH JASON CROW AFTER HIS FIRST 100 DAYS AS A CONGRESMAN

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

We spoke to Jason Crow, Representative for Colorado, on his 100th day as a congressman.

Have you enjoyed a “honeymoon” in your first 100 days in the congress?

Jason Crow: When we were sworn in, we inherited the federal government shutdown. We spent most of the first five weeks dealing with the closure of the government and trying to get the federal administration to operate again. And we transitioned right from that into addressing really important issues. There was no honeymoon.

What is your main message to your constituencies?

JC: Me and my staff and my colleagues in Congress are going to fight every day to make sure we are protecting families. We are working to keep families together. We are pushing very hard on a comprehensive immigration reform and on responding to the dreamers and TPS [ Temporary Protected Status] and DED [ Deferred Enforced Departure] holders.

How do plan to help the dreamers?

JC: We are working to get republican support for the “Dream and Promise Act.” It is a bill introduced by the democrats to redeem Dreamers and TPS and DED holders. On the 6th congressional district, we have 7,000 DACA recipients and 1,000 people that received TPS protection. There will be 8,000 people immediately impacted by this law and many more who are eligible for some protection.

On February 20th, you denounced a mumps outbreak on an ICE facility located in Aurora. Do you have any updates of what is happening on this detention center?

JC: Since our involvement, local authorities have established vaccination programs for detainees and employees. But there are a lot of dangerous things happening right now on DHS. According to some reports, Trump does not believe on birth right citizenship. He believes in not allowing the people to seek asylum when they reach our border on ports of entry. He wants to build the wall and reinstate the child separation policy.
