New York, NY – Cesar Vargas, Co-Founder of Dream Action Coalition, has accepted a position on Bernie Sanders’ campaign. To clarify it’s position, the Dream Action Coalition has issued the following statement:
“For Dreamers and our community, Sanders is a strong choice: he is great on immigration in general, stood with us on the border children and he wants to get the Corrections Corporation of America, GEO Group and other corporations out of politics,” said Carlos Vargas, Co-Director of Dream Action Coalition. “At the same time that Bernie is trying to chase them out of DC, Hillary is accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from GEO and CCA’s registered lobbyists: one day they will call in several hundred thousand dollars worth of favors and skew the discussion on immigration reform to keep their detention facilities full.”
“We respect the work that Secretary Clinton has done, and appreciate her discussion with Dreamers earlier this year,” said Ryan Campbell, Communications Director for Dream Action Coalition. “When we think of who is in our corner the most, and who will reform the legislative process to actually make immigration reform possible, Sanders is the obvious choice.
