Pelosi and House Dems in the Newsroom


                Pelosi Statement on Implementation of Obama Administration Directive on DREAM-Eligible Youth

“It was one of the proudest accomplishments of the Democratic-led House to pass the DREAM Act with a bipartisan vote in 2010; it was one of our great disappointments to see action blocked by Republicans in the Senate.  Democrats will continue to push to pass the DREAM Act and to enact bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform that secures our borders, upholds the rule of law, protects our workers, unites families, and provides a pathway to legalization.”

                Pelosi Statement on House GOP Lawsuit Against Attorney General Holder
