A Dreamer hero whose life story tells us a lot

June 30, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Sen. Dick Durbin writes about Dr. Manuel Bernal, a DACA recipient on the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic and says that Dreamers like Manuel have lived in immigration purgatory due to Congressional inability to summon the courage to solve this problem.

As Manuel has been risking his life caring for countless Illinoisans sickened by the coronavirus, his very future has hung in the balance: For nearly three years, President Donald Trump has pushed his fight to repeal DACA all the way to the Supreme Court.

Thankfully, last week, the Supreme Court brought a smile and sigh of relief to Manuel and 650,000 to 700,000 young people like him in the United States.

Sadly, for decades, Dreamers like Manuel have lived in immigration purgatory due to Congressional inability to summon the courage to solve this problem.

As President Trump considers what to do next, he should know that more than 200,000 Dreamers are essential employees and more than 40,000 are health care workers, like Manuel.

As long as I am a US Senator, I will continue going to the floor of the Senate to advocate for Manuel and other Dreamers like him who simply want a chance to prove themselves and earn their way into America's future.
