The 34 names on Kate’s List are GOP lawmakers who signed a letter (View) to Speaker Paul Ryan asking him to focus on passing DACA Amnesty for illegal aliens before Christmas 2017 instead of focusing on protecting Americans like Kate Steinle and thousands of others harmed by illegals each year!
We write in support of passing of a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year … We must pass legislation that protects DACA recipients from deportation and gives them the opportunity to apply for a more secured status in our country as soon as possible.
The FWD.us group favors a no-strings Dream Act for illegals, partly because the GOP threat to end of DACA is pressuring Democrats to accept President Donald Trump’s popular, salary-raising immigration principles, which include the end of chain migration.
The other legislators who signed the letter include Reps. Scott Taylor, Dan Newhouse, Rodney Davis, Carlos Curbelo, Mia Love, Mark Amodei, Brian Fitzpatrick, Mike Coffman, Peter King, Ryan Costello, Fred Upton, Jeff Denham, John Faso, John Katko, Chris Stewart, Susan Brooks, Adam Kinzinger, Mike Simpson, Mimi Walters, Leonard Lance, Pat Meehan, Elise Stefanik, Tom MacArthur, and Chris Smith, Will Hurd and Bruce Poliquin.
Other legislators who kept their support quiet include Faso in New York, Simpson in Idaho, Lance in New Jersey, Upton in Michigan, Meehan in Pennsylvania, Costello in Pennsylvania, Smith in New Jersey, Hurd in Texas, Poliquin in Maine, and Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania.
Thanks to @SEIU & @weareoneamerica for meeting with me about the need for certainty for DACA recipients. I have been urging leadership to bring forward a proposed permanent solution before the end of the year. pic.twitter.com/pFVfvhROOb

Thank you @RepScottTaylor and @RepNewhouse for urging @SpeakerRyan to pass a legislative solution for #Dreamers before the holidays. Reaching across the aisle to protect Dreamers is the right thing to do. https://t.co/FweiEbRYV1 pic.twitter.com/LzOEBw55Ol

We don’t agree on DreamAct. We agree there is a bipartisan permanent solution that will contain a needed fix for this population and more security/enforcement. https://t.co/bih1kY6CnN

@FAIRImmigration This is a totally disingenuous post. “No strings”? Wrong. We want security/disincentives for illegal immigration along with dealing with this population. Our party should lead on this and it should be bipartisan. https://t.co/cuR9pWmRUo

Did you read your letter? Aside from merely agreeing that our border must be enforced, can you point us to the "security/disincentives" that you call for? All we see is a repeated call for a pure amnesty — the ultimate incentive for future illegal immigration. https://t.co/QvVXRbGuWx

So grateful to all my colleagues who have come together to demand a solution for #DREAMers and #DACA by the end of the year. The time to act is now. Congress has been debating this for 16 years and the stakes are very high. These young men & women are America's children! https://t.co/CIryuwAYfJ
