    Our President/CEO remarks:

    My name is Julian Canete, and proudly serve as the President and CEO of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce. The CHCC represents the business interest of over 800,000 Hispanic owned businesses throughout the State of California. Through a network of regional Hispanic Chambers and business associations, the CHCC promotes the economic growth and development of Hispanic entrepreneurs and California’s emerging businesses.

    I appreciate the organizing group’s invitation for the CHCC to be part of this event, and look forward to continuing to stand together in support of the Dream Act.

    Regardless of politics, every Californian – Democrat, Independent or Republican – understands that this common-sense piece of legislation is good for our economy, our prosperity, and the soul of our communities across the state. Legislation like the Dream Act is one of the few issues that are supported across communities, from small to big businesses, and across generations.

    The CHCC urges every member of the California Delegation, and every member of Congress to assume their rightful responsibility for crafting, supporting, and enforcing humane immigration policies that can benefit the 1.9 million young people in the workforce who would be immediately eligible for the Dream Act based on their age at time of entry and length of residency requirements and the nearly 1.1 million young people who meet the age at time of entry, length of residency, and educational requirements.

    We need a workable, permanent solution for individuals who entered our country unlawfully as children through no fault for their own and who have built their life here, for the 316,200 Californians who are currently DACA-eligible -- and that solution needs to come from this Congress.

    There was no real urgency to end DACA, now we, and this group of young Dreamers are reliving old fears, and our economy will be severely if a Dream Act is not passed.

    Dreamers are again living in limbo - 800,000 youth that were granted DACA and now are high skill workers and are pursuing higher education. They are Americans.

    There are as American as you, and me, it is time to get it done, and do it right.

    Thank you.
