Eight hundred thousand young immigrants thrust into uncertainty this week after President Trump rescinded the deferred action on childhood arrivals program – DACA. Congress is now responsible for the future of the so-called DREAMers – those who have benefited from the Obama-era executive order creating DACA – before the program expires in six months. Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-NV) is a formerly undocumented immigrant who was brought into the U.S. at age 8 by his Mexican parents and is calling on Congress to pass the DREAM Act. It’s a controversial piece of legislation that would allow a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants who were brought to America as children. The bill was originally introduced in 2001 and, like comprehensive immigration reform, has yet to successfully pass Congress. Kihuen sits down with Soledad O’Brien to discuss immigration reform in Congress and why he says he could compromise on funding for a border wall.
