Throughout its history, America has given immigrants an opportunity to prove their worth, and they have repaid that chance with their hard work and good ideas.  Now more than ever, America needs a smart, talented, hard-working, and innovative workforce.  Ending DACA is not only an affront to the American Dream, but also short-sighted and mean-spirited.  We urge congress to act quickly to protect the Dreamers, not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because they are a resource that our country can ill afford to lose in these already difficult times.
