Press Release

Washington, D.C.—(March 22, 2018) Today, Rep. Juan Vargas released this statement after voting against the government funding bill in the House:

“Republicans have decided to throw the American Dream under the omnibus by refusing to give us a vote on a permanent protection for hundreds of thousands of DREAMers. These young immigrants, like the millions that have come before them, contribute to our communities and make America a better place.

"My priorities are to fund programs that benefit the American people and address the needs of our communities. I will not support any funding bill that excludes protection for DREAMers and helps the Trump Administration separate families.”
