Perez: DREAMers as ‘American as My Three US-Born Kids’

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday that “DREAMers are every bit American” as his three United States-born children.

Perez said, “[M]oving forward I think what we have to do is continue to be good listeners, continue to deliver on the promises that we made… passing an infrastructure bill that actually puts people to work, that fixes roads and bridges, that helps us make a down payment on our commitment to combat climate change, that helps DREAMers,” Perez stated.

“In 2013 we passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill,” he added. “That seems like a lifetime ago, but we’re going to keep trying, because I think our DREAMers are every bit as American as my three U.S.-born kids.”
