Protesters are planning to converge on John Faso’s Kinderhook office tonight. According to their Facebook page, they want the Congressman to support the following:
“We Wish for A Clean DREAM Act and We Want It Now! Join CCSM and constituents throughout Congressional District 19 for a local rally accompanying United We Dream's National Rally for a "clean" DREAM Act and in support of TPS. We are calling on Representative John Faso to support a Clean DREAM ACT and to support TPS. Clean means no money for enforcement and militarization. Lights and Christmas Caroling included!
A clean dream act is described below:
Dream Act 2017 will provide a pathway to citizenship for 2.1 million immigrant youth and young adults, with a fast track for current DACA recipients. Those who qualify would have to work, join the military or earn a higher education degree. A clean Dream Act would ensure that youth are not used as a bargaining chip for funds to build a border wall, increase border security and immigration enforcement, and expand detention centers.
