Cornyn-Supported Organization Seeks to Make DACA Permanent
Texas Scorecard ^ | 2/3/2021 | Michael Swirsky

In 2012, President Obama signed an executive memorandum that would delay the deportation of illegal aliens who entered the United States as minors.

A new organization supported by Texas senior U.S. Sen. John Cornyn wants to make that change permanent.

Formed by more than 30 colleges and economic development entities, The Texas Opportunity Coalition calls for legislation that would grant permanent legal status to “Dreamers,” the term given to recipients of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Cornyn addressed the group in a pre-recorded clip, endorsing their plan for a permanent path to citizenship for “Dreamers.”

“When President Obama announced this program eight and a half years ago, he did so through a short-sighted executive memorandum. After years of being yanked around from court ruling to court ruling, these young men and women deserve certainty and to be able to plan their future,” said Cornyn.

The senator’s endorsement shouldn’t be too surprising. Cornyn, whose conservative credentials have come under question by grassroots throughout his time in office, has frequently called for permanent resident status for DACA recipients. After the Supreme Court rejected the Trump administration’s bid to reverse the executive order, Cornyn embraced the policy.

Well, he’s running neck-and-neck with McConnell’s water boy, John Thune.
