President Trump's decision to rescind DACA is a crushing blow to more than 17,000 DREAMers in Colorado, but our fight isn't over. I will continue working to pass legislation, such as the Dream Act, that helps these young men and women remain in this country and achieve their American dream.
President Trump should be working to build an administration that promotes unity. Instead, he is appointing advisors and considering cabinet nominees who have proven divisive. I urge Mr. Trump to change course and pledge to be a president who represents all Americans.
