The Congressional Hispanic Caucus monthly newsletter just asked Darren to talk about his first few months in office.  Here's what he said:

“It has been a busy four months since I first got to Washington after my historic campaign to become the first Florida Puerto Rican in Congress.  We have hired a diverse staff which is half Hispanic including our Press Secretary and District Director. We have opened District offices in all three counties including Osceola, Polk and Orange to better serve our constituents.  I also have stood with our Congressional Hispanic Caucus through many historic moments including our Inaugural Response Press Conference, National Day of Action on Immigration and International Workers' Day.  We successfully fought to exclude Trump's Wall and Deportation Force from the 2017 budget.  And we confronted Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly on behalf of our DREAMers to ensure the protection of the DACA Program.  While the future will surely bring additional challenges given Trump's Anti-Hispanic agenda, I know one thing for certain:  We in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus remain united and ready for the fight!”
