Rep. Castro: We Should Not Be Trading the Lives of DREAMers for a ‘Wall Across America’
CASTRO: "I think that’s going to be a tough deal for the president to make. I don’t believe that we should be trading the lives of 800,000 young d.r.e.a.m.ers for a wall across America. And as somebody that represents Texas, I know that most Texans do not want a wall across 1,200 miles of the texas/mexico border. And so those are two issues that really should be separated. Look, Republicans control the White House, the Senate and the house of representatives. If they want to take a vote on the wall, they know that they can do that separately and still take another vote on the D.R.E.A.M. Act, which is the way that I think we should handle this."
