Yet the same can not be said for the hundreds of thousands of DREAMers whose lives and futures are still on the line after President Trump ended the DACA program. Cory Booker, who called the issue one of "basic decency and morality" and last month, and said "I want solutions to protect these kids, and won't vote for a spending bill that doesn't include one".
