first_img December 20, 2017 National Issues,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today joined a bi-partisan group of governors urging Congress to address the critical issue of the possible deportation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program participants, also known as Dreamers.“I am incredibly pleased and proud to be a part of this group of Democratic and Republican governors who understand the devastating impact of the possible deportation of nearly 800,000 American immigrants,” Governor Wolf said. “The Dreamer participants are Americans in every sense of the word. They have grown up, been educated, and established their lives here. To deport any of these Americans is cruel, and we need a permanent solution to this now.”In a letter to Congressional leaders, Governor Wolf and nine other governors are urging Congress to come together quickly to shape a bi-partisan solution that allows Dreamers to remain in the United States to continue their constructive contributions to our society.From the letter:“As each of us cherishes time spent with family and friends in this holiday season, let us also remember the nearly 800,000 young people eligible for DACA, known as “Dreamers,” living in our states.  These are individuals who played no role in the decision to come here and they have known no other home but the United States.“Already, more than 12,000 Dreamers have lost their protective status and are susceptible to deportation. This is not a theoretical peril, but in fact an immediate and urgent one, because more than 100 young people in our cities and towns are losing their protective status every day. Those numbers will accelerate dramatically without a legislative fix.“We stand with these young American immigrants not only because it is good for our communities and a strong American 21st century economy, but also because it is the right thing for our nation to do.”Governor Wolf signed the letter along with Govs. Kasich (OH), Hickenlooper (CO), Bullock (MT), Sandoval (NV), Baker (MA), Scott (VT), Dayton (MN), Cooper (NC), and Walker (AK).The governors urged support of these young American immigrants to help them to continue to play a productive role in their communities and to remain in the only home they have ever known.Read the full content of the letter to Congressional leaders below.

first_imgThe Wisconsin women’s soccer team has remained winless in its last three games, two consecutive double-overtime ties against Michigan and Minnesota, and the latest defeat at home Sunday against the Ohio State BuckeyesThe Badgers struggled mightily in the first half, mustering only two shots in the opening 45 minutes. It was not until the second half that Ohio State goalkeeper Katie Baumgardner even had to make a save, quite an uncommon statistic for a Wisconsin team that averages nearly 14 shots per game.Wisconsin head coach Paula Wilkins felt the team simply backed down against an Ohio State team unafraid of go head-to-head on the road.“In the first couple minutes of the game … we are getting around the corner and getting a bunch of corner kicks, and when Ohio State starts to put their physical imprint on the game we stop doing the things that we do well,” Wilkins said.Despite heavy pressure from Ohio State, Wisconsin was able to keep the score tied at zero going into halftime, thanks in part to three saves by senior goalkeeper Michele Dalton.“[We] always play really well together. It starts with communication and leadership back there. Both me and Flann [Meghan Flannery] making sure everyone is attached, and we stay together and we move forward and back together as a defensive unit,” Dalton said. “I think that is how we have always been successful. Unfortunately I think it was a marking error that resulted in the goal, which is something we have been working on, so that makes it a little more frustrating.”The strong defensive effort by the Badgers was ruined when the goal referenced by Dalton was scored less than three minutes into the second half off a header by OSU leading goal scorer, forward Tiffany Cameron.Speed seemed to be what finally got the better of Wisconsin’s defense, especially Cameron’s. The Ohio State forwards were able to consistently get around the corner to create scoring chances and had Wisconsin very much on its heels.“[Ohio State’s speed] probably forced us to sit back a little bit further, [but] when there is somebody who is fast you need to not sit back a little further, you need to be uptight on them and I think that might have been one of our problems; we gave them a little more space than we should have,” defender Meghan Flannery said.The Badgers offense finally got involved in the second half, outshooting the Buckeyes 7-6, but the frantic pace didn’t translate to goals, missing multiple close range opportunities.“In the second they scored early so we pretty much spent the entire second half fighting our way back and knowing that we had to take more chances,” senior forward Laurie Nosbusch said.Following the game was another example of Wilkins feeling the need to hold an intense meeting with players after a game. One was a senior meeting following the 2-1 loss against Central Michigan earlier this season; Sunday’s involved the whole team and Wilkins trying to change their entire mindset.“For the longest time, this program I think we have always responded to what other team have done, their level of play, their mentality of facing them and how they respond to it,” Wilkins said. “I have challenged them to shake that, change the program to where they are consistent and responsible for each other and the impact of the game. Instead of letting somebody else control it, that they start to take control.”The Badgers have a week of practice before taking the field Friday against the Cornhuskers to get it right.“We just need to get back on track,” Nosbusch said. “There is no more motivation in the world than knowing you’re scrapping just to get into the Big Ten Tournament, so that is going to be our motivation and I think that is what is going to drive us to come out and get a win against Nebraska.”last_img read more
