Office Hours: Dreamers, Legal Experts and Advocates Break Down the Latest on the Immigration Debate

Women’s Refugee Commission firmly believes in the need to protect the hundreds of thousands of Dreamers who are an integral part of communities around the United States. However, no deal on immigration should trade the lives of one group of vulnerable individuals for another. Children and adults escaping violence are not exploiting so-called “loopholes,” nor do they pose a threat to border security. Instead, they are desperate to find safety and fairness in an immigration process they have a legal right to access. Gutting those protections in the name of border security does not make America any safer, nor our borders more secure.
