There is a new coalition of Texas businesses looking to help DREAMers. The Texas Opportunity Coalition launched on Tuesday, pushing for the federal government to give permanent legal status to those brought illegally into the U.S. as children. It has the backing of GOP U.S. Senator John Cornyn, who says there must be a legislative solution instead of executive actions and court rulings.
Coalition leaders say DREAMers help the economy grow. They want legislation focused only on DREAMers, and not on the immigration debate as a whole.
