‘For that we are grateful to their parents’

EXCERPT:

PELOSI: "Thank you, Mr. Chairman. And thank you for bringing us all together so that we can say thank you to our DREAMers, for making America more American with their hopes, optimism, courage, determination to make the future better for their families. For that we are grateful to their parents. Please thank your parents for us as was mentioned by Antonio for giving us the opportunity to have you in our country. I’m honored to be here with the distinguished chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Mr. Castro, with the godmother of the DREAM Act, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard, chairman now of the Homeland Security Committee, to be with our distinguished Attorney General of California, our former colleague and a champion on this issue in the Congress and now in the courts, Xavier Becerra.”
