BREAKING: Curbelo and Diaz-Balart break with party, stand with immigrant families

Actually, they didn’t.

Instead, with President Trump in Miami on Friday, they literally stood by his side and made no public statements on the same day as his administration rescinded DAPA – President Obama’s program to protect undocumented parents of lawful U.S. residents and citizens.

Congressman Curbelo and Diaz-Balart have both previously expressed support for DAPA. Their silence as President Trump rescinds the program shows that Curbelo and Diaz-Balart have chosen political convenience over millions of families who are at risk (again).

“Carlos Curbelo and Mario Diaz-Balart refused to speak up for South Florida’s diverse immigrant community on an issue they claimed to support in the past. That sends a loud and clear message to all voters that Rep. Curbelo and Rep. Diaz-Balart just can’t be trusted,” said Cole Leiter of the DCCC.
