D.C. — TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation
economy CEOs and senior executives, today welcomed the introduction by U.S. Senators Thom Tillis
(R-NC), James Lankford (R-OK), and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) of the SUCCEED Act, which
would provide permanent immigration relief to Dreamers. The following
statement is attributable to TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore:
“The clock is running on Dreamers,
and March 5 will be here before we know it. We appreciate the
sense of urgency Senators Tillis, Lankford, and Hatch are demonstrating on this
issue and for putting forward a serious proposal for Congress to consider.
“Deporting 800,000 Dreamers would hurt
our economy, and unrightfully punish children for the actions of their
parents. Neither is good for America. It’s time for Congress to act
and make sure politics doesn’t get in the way of providing relief for these
TechNet is part of a coalition of
American entrepreneurs and business leaders calling on Congress
to pass legislation protecting Dreamers.
