senate Bill S. 1095

Should 'Dreamers' be Allowed to Work as Congressional Staffers & Interns?

Argument in favor

Dreamers have worked on the Hill as fellows funded by third parties and unpaid volunteers for years. It’s time to give them equal status with U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents in the process of applying for citizenship and allow them to be paid directly by congressional offices.

Why not? They would have to pass security and background checks. Foreign Nationals are currently permitted access to select classified information employed in situations that require it. Why should this be treated differently? Besides I love the idea of demonstrating that not all of our Country is part of trump’s war on immigrants; and that the Dreamer’s who have lived their commitment to this Country are not going to segregated against.

Dreamers have lived here most of their lives. They are as a group as trustworthy as any other. It makes no sense to exclude them from paid internships

Argument opposed

Given the sensitive nature of the work many members of Congress and their offices are involved in, it makes sense to require their staffers and interns to be U.S. citizens. Dreamers’ exclusion from paid staff and internship positions in congressional offices makes sense in this context.

No Way Under The Sun...... Americans Citizens Should Be Preferred First Given the sensitive nature of the work many members of Congress and their offices are involved in, it makes sense to require their staffers and interns to be U.S. citizens. Dreamers’ exclusion from paid staff and internship positions in congressional offices makes sense in this context. Yes they should be paid, but not as non-citizens, in Governmental offices.

I think they should work on becoming U.S. citizens BEFORE they go to work in Congressional Offices.

Absolutely no one should be allowed to work in, on, or for the government unless they are a citizen of the US. Zero exceptions !!

    The argument that only U.S. citizens can be trusted to work in Congress and the White House is not based on any supportable evidence. Being a U.S. citizen doesn't guarantee anything. Many Dreamers have been here for years and should not be punished for a decision that they had no part in. Further we have the same stupid argument from Republicans/Conservatives who complain on the one hand about having to support Dreamers and immigrants yet on the other hand block them from being employed. What is worse is that they have no idea how irrational that is.

    Seriously. What a STUPID IDEA. How about picking your TRUE CONSTITUENTS first???? How disgusting the Democrats have become. But of course Kamala Harris doesn’t care about HER CONSTITUENTS. So tell us Kamala, what does your constituents think of you? Choosing illegal immigrants over American citizens is atrocious You should be ashamed of yourself. I am.

    Don’t they already work there? I’m sure they do actually. What your really asking is should they get paid and the answer is YES.

    Congress needs to address the issue of citizenship for the Dreamers prior to granting other entitlements.
