My name is Pedro. I am a first year law student in Austin and a DREAMer. My parents brought me to this exceptional country at the age of four. I am writing today to ask you to be bold and stand up with me by supporting comprehensive immigration reform.
The Senate has already acted. Now it’s up to the House.
But House Republicans from Texas are too worried about elections and are too chicken to even allow a vote on the Senate bill before the legislative calendar ends.
That’s because they know that the Senate bill
-- which would give millions of people like me and our families an opportunity at the American Dream -- could pass today if only the House Republicans would allow a vote.
This bipartisan legislation is good for the Texas economy, will unite families, and will allow everyone who is a citizen at heart to be a citizen on paper.
Take a stand and say you are with me:
We can’t let this moment pass us by. Texas
-- and the rest of the county -- is ready for reform. Thank you for supporting me, and others like me, Pedro V. Texas Democratic Party
