Rep. Gutiérrez on Passing the DREAM Act, Deaths in Puerto Rico & His Aspirations for the Presidency

In one of the biggest immigration rallies of the year, thousands rallied last Wednesday on Capitol Hill to demand Congress pass the DREAM Act before the end of 2017. About 100 people were arrested in an act of civil disobedience, including DN!'s guest, Illinois Congressmember Luis Gutiérrez, Democrat of Illinois. He is a member of the Judiciary Committee and co-chair of the Immigration Task Force of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Last month, he announced he will not seek re-election next year, after 13 terms in the House, in order to focus more on the recovery in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
