WASHINGTON — Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement after the Senate failed to pass a bipartisan immigration agreement to protect Dreamers and strengthen border security. As a member of the bipartisan Common Sense Coalition, Senator Hassan participated in negotiations for weeks that produced this bipartisan agreement.
“I am deeply concerned that President Trump and his Administration did everything they could to defeat this bipartisan agreement that would have protected Dreamers and strengthened our border security,” Senator Hassan said. “The Common Sense Coalition has demonstrated that there is strong bipartisan consensus for protecting Dreamers whose energy, hard-work, and innovation is critical to our economic future. While this setback is extremely disappointing, I will continue working with the Common Sense Coalition and anyone else who is willing to join us to find a path forward for Dreamers and to ensure that our country is safe, secure, and free.”
