I commend today's action by the U.S. House of Representatives on the passage of H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act.  The bill halts deportations and provides a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers.

GW is a better institution because of its ability to admit talented, gifted, and passionate students without regard to national origin or ethnicity and without requiring residents of the United States to provide documentation. 

This bill would provide much-needed certainty and relief to millions of families throughout the United States, including members of our community.
