Washington, D.C. — Representing congressional districts with large numbers of Hispanic voters, Congressmen Devin Nunes and Duncan Hunter voted against the American Dream and Promise Act — a bill that would provide DACA and TPS recipients an opportunity to earn a path towards citizenship. By voting against this bill, Nunes and Hunter voted to deport hard-working, law-abiding immigrants.

In California alone, there are 74,920 TPS holders, and in:

  • CA-22: There are 5,000 DACA recipients and 7,700 DREAMers eligible for DACA in Congressman Nunes’ district

  • CA-50: There are 3,900 DACA recipients and 6,100 DREAMers eligible for DACA in Congressman Hunter’s district

It is abundantly clear that they are out of touch with the needs of their districts and the issues affecting the Latino community. Latino Victory Fund National Press Secretary María R. González issued the following statement:

“Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes and Duncan Hunter betrayed California’s Latino and immigrant communities when they voted to deport DREAMers and TPS recipients by rejecting the American Dream and Promise Act. Their votes are yet another example of how they have gone Washington and turned their backs on their constituents. The people of their districts deserve leaders who will support the will of the majority of the American people and fight to protect hard-working Dreamers and TPS recipients. It’s time for Nunes and Hunter to go.”
