Pelosi Says Dems Will Prioritize Amnesty for ‘Patriotic’ Dreamers

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday that Democrats will prioritize amnesty for “patriotic” Dreamers and “take the first step” toward a broader comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress.

Pelosi and Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) co-wrote a Washington Post op-ed Sunday in which they outlined their party’s priorities for the upcoming Congress. They vowed to “pass the Dream Act to protect the patriotic young undocumented immigrants who came here as children, and take the first step toward comprehensive immigration reform.”

They also discussed plans to restore democracy by reforming ethics laws, reining in “dark money,” pushing more campaign finance reform, and strengthening voting rights legislation.
