New York – In response to House Republicans’ plan to vote on two immigration bills next week, Stosh Cotler, CEO of Bend the Arc Jewish Action, released the following statement:

“Once again, Republican leadership in the House is working to kill the Dream Act, trading crucial legislation supported by the vast majority of Americans for inhumane policies championed by the far-right of their caucus. Their proposals will continue to threaten the lives and livelihoods of Dreamers, tear immigrant families apart, and further the atrocities being committed by CBP and ICE. House Republicans should be on notice: their constituents will remember their callousness and negligence in November.”
