With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. The scramble is on in Washington D.C. to come up with a permanent solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Representative Dan Newhouse says these young people need some finality to the problem …

DAN NEWHOUSE … “I think we need to include in this, certainly, a way to be able to find a path forward to legal residency, legal status I guess is a better word for these young people. Many of them have known no other country.”

Newhouse says the children are not at fault …

DAN NEWHOUSE … “I really like the sentiment expressed by several people, one in particular, a Senator said that we as a country do not hold young people responsible for actions of their parents and I think that this is a good example of how we as a nation can respond in the right way.”

Newhouse says these young people help make our communities what they are …

DAN NEWHOUSE … “You know we have a lot of these young people in Central Washington. Many of them are attending school. They’ve served in the military. They are business people. They’re doing a lot to improve our communities and I think that most people would agree that we need to do something to give them more certainty in their lives.”

Listen tomorrow for more on the progress being made on a DACA fix and the likelihood it will be completed by year’s end.
