One Heck of a Meeting

Today, we're seeing another office visit. Once again, Rep. Joe Heck (R-Henderson) was greeted by DREAM Big Vegas. And this time, they came ready to pray.

And that wasn't all. There was another twist. This time, Rep. Joe Heck came down to pray and speak with the activists.

Denice, Victoria, Chris, and Juan all shared their own personal stories with Rep. Heck. Denice's husband can no longer visit his family in Mexico. Neither can Victoria, as she was separated from her mother when she was only eight.

Chris and Juan then explained to Rep. Heck how DACA has allowed them to actually work and live their lives without (as much) fear. Maybe this is why he's been changing his tune on the DREAM Act?

Astrid was not even expecting this. It was a pleasant surprise that Rep. Heck came out to speak with the activists. At least there was dialogue today.

Perhaps it can continue...
