Congressman Doggett Standing in Support of Our Dreamers

Today, our wonderful Congressman, Congressman Lloyd Doggett set an example an submitted a formal request in Washington for the release of Josue Romero, a DACA recipient.

“After conferring with his father and his attorney, I have tonight made a formal request to ICE in Washington for Josue’s immediate release. While its new policies may increasingly endanger millions of undocumented immigrants, the Trump Administration has not yet revoked DACA. ICE must not revoke DACA on a case-by-case basis. Josue is a student in good standing who is charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. He poses no threat to our national security or public safety. The only threat posed is to Josue’s personal safety if ICE deports him to Honduras, a dangerous country which he has never known as home. I hope other members of our community will join in voicing their strong support for Josue.”
