Editor:

Candidates make many promises but delivering on them is a tall order. In six short months, Congressman Harder has already demonstrated his commitment to our District, with frequent public meetings across District 10, bi-partisan work for farmers, veterans and others, and now as co-sponsor for HR6, the Dream and Promise Act of 2019. This latter would provide a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers, Temporary Protected Status holders and Deferred Enforced Departure holders. In this, as in other actions, Congressman Harder is following through on his charge to work for our District. Having gone to high school with fellow students who later qualified for DACA and having taught these students at Modesto Junior College, he recognizes how much these immigrants are contributing to our community and our local, state and national economies. Like Congressman Harder who returned to his community, many of these young immigrants returned to our area upon completing their education and are making District 10 stronger. While it will be an uphill battle, Congressman Harder’s record demonstrates that he will continue to fight until HR6 is passed into law. Thank you, Congressman
