It is also a fact that CIS, FAIR, NumbersUSA, IRLI and CAPS have direct ties to white nationalists, want to end all immigration, and are threatening the wellbeing of myself and other Dreamers in order to enact a radical anti-immigrant agenda.

"This is an issue we can solve and I'm heartened to see the discussion reaching a boil", Virginia senator Tim Kaine said on the senate floor. "I dreamed of becoming a pilot and didn't learn I was undocumented until the recruiter told me because of my status I wasn't eligible".
