Newhouse wants action

— Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) led a press conference in the U.S. Capitol with 13 House GOP Reps. to call for action on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The members urged that Congress act and support ongoing negotiations led by House Republican leaders for a legislative solution for beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before the end of 2017.

“We need a solution to get 218 House votes, 60 votes in the Senate, or there is no deal,” Newhouse said. “No bill is going to be perfect, but inaction is just not acceptable.”
