AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Rep. Mike Coffman has gone against his own party to protect DREAMERS. Despite that, he was the subject of a rally outside his office in Aurora on Thursday.
Coffman, a Republican representing Aurora, filed a petition that would force Congress to vote on a bill protecting children brought to the U.S. illegally after Pres. Trump repealed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program.
The protesters carried a cardboard cutout of their congressman and other signs. They want Congress to stop playing games with children.
Coffman and Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat and Sen. Cory Gardner, a Republican, all support keeping DREAMERS in the U.S.
