    User Clip: Rep. Gutierrez Addresses the House on Senate Budget Deal and Dreamers

    Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois addressed the House for 5 minutes during the Morning Hour to express his opposition to the Senate budget and spending deal the House is expected to vote on today. The two-year deal does not address those with DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program the President has ended, nor the Dream Act (HR 3440). Rep. Gutiérrez has consistently said since September that he will not vote for budgets, spending resolutions or other “must-pass” legislation that fails to protect the Dreamers who are becoming vulnerable to deportation. During his speech this morning, the Congressman also called out the President and his staff for their characterizations of immigrants in the State of the Union address and elsewhere. Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez is a Member of the Judiciary Committee and the Chair of the Immigration Task Force of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
