The opening paragraphs of each letter read:
We are writing to support your efforts to find a workable solution for Dreamers,those young undocumented immigrants in our country who were brought here bytheir parents and who contribute great things to our society. Many of these youngimmigrants are currently protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals(DACA) program, but we share your concerns that an executive order is aproblematic tool to accomplish these policy objectives. The complexity of thisparticular issue begs for a legislative solution and demands leadership on CapitolHill.
The letter to President Trump follows with: While working with leadership on Capitol Hill on a permanent legislative solution, we also ask that you ensure that these young immigrants are protected.
The letters to Speaker Ryan/Leader McConnell say:We are also calling on President Trump to ensure these people are protectedwhile a legislative solution is finalized.
