Bennet Statement on Failure to Pass Bipartisan Protection for Dreamers

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement after the Senate failed to pass bipartisan protection for Dreamers:

"This is another pitiful example of common sense losing out to dysfunction and polarization. For months, we worked in good faith to reach a principled compromise that protects Dreamers and addresses border security. At every turn, President Trump undermined our efforts to solve the crisis that he created. Today's resounding bipartisan rejection of the President's proposal should lead him to reconsider his extreme position. In the meantime, we must continue to protect Dreamers.
