USHCC Encouraged with Sen. Cornyn’s Efforts to Protect DACA Recipients in Congress


WASHINGTON – The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) commends U.S. Senate efforts to find a compassionate solution for DACA recipients across the country.

“The actions taken this week by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and his colleagues in introducing the Security, Enforcement, and Compassion United in Reform Efforts (SECURE) Act in Congress displays a clear willingness to work across the aisle to find a solution for dreamers in good faith,” said Javier Palomarez, USHCC President & CEO.

“As we move towards legislative negotiations on the issue of DACA, the USHCC stands, – as it always has – committed to supporting the 800,000+ students, employees, entrepreneurs and community members we call DACA recipients. They represent some of the very best of American society and as productive members of our economy, constitute a priority for small businesses nationwide.”
