Mike Coffman’s Tweets and Empty Promises Mean Nothing when the Future of DACA is in Jeopardy

No one is safe under President Trump’s Administration, and yesterday Homeland Security John Kelly reaffirmed this notion when he told House Democrats that DACA was in “serious jeopardy.”

A single tweet from Congressman Coffman doesn’t cut it. During the first seven months of this new Congress, Coffman has done the bare minimum to protect law-abiding immigrants, like the DREAMers he keeps promising to protect, from President Trump’s mass deportation force.

And in fact, Coffman just recently applauded the president’s harsh immigration policies during a local interview.

“A tweet means nothing to the thousands of Colorado families who will be torn apart by Trump’s dangerous agenda,” said Javier Gamboa of the DCCC. “Congressman Coffman can fake independence all he wants but at the end of the day, House Republicans are in full control of Washington and they will follow the President’s lead on immigration. Colorado voters will see right through Coffman’s empty promises and will chose a real leader that will finally stand up to Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda and will pass comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”
