Soto Co-Sponsors and Votes to Honor our Nation’s Values and Pass The Dream and Promise Act
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Darren Soto (FL-09) released the following statement today after House passage of H.R. 6, The Dream and Promise Act, legislation offering a pathway to citizenship for up to 2.5 million immigrants who have spent much of their lives in the United States:
“The American Dream lives on! I am honored to be an original co-sponsor of the Dream and Promise Act and to have casted my vote to pass this historic bill. We know Dreamers, TPS and DED holders are American in every sense of the word other than our antiquated immigration laws.
“Florida is home to over 90,000 Dreamers who have tremendously contributed to our community and our economy. I’ve had the privilege of meeting many DACA recipients here in Central Florida, including hosting some as interns in my Congressional offices. These Dreamers are ambitious and hardworking young people. They are the reason I have fought tirelessly for this legislation protecting these proud Americans.”
