DACA meeting at White House “Positive step…” says Hoyer

WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-MD) released the following statement today regarding Monday morning’s White House immigration meeting and the statement issued by the White House on that meeting:

“Today’s meeting at the White House was a positive step forward in that everyone in the room agreed that we must take action on DACA immediately; however, the statement issued by the White House is inaccurate. Republicans put forward their four priority areas, but our priority remains the same: ensuring that DREAMers can remain in the only country they’ve ever called home. I was pleased that the President agreed that we need to address DACA now, and I hope that we can come together to quickly reach an agreement on legislation that will pass the House and Senate and be signed into law.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
