Are protecting young immigrants, aka "Dreamers", a moral imperative or a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success” ?

'The Center For American Progress (CAP) Action Fund circulated a memo on Monday calling illegal immigrants brought here at a young age — so-called “Dreamers” — a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

The memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, was sent around to allies calling on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

President Donald Trump’s administration moved to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy in September, which former President Barack Obama instituted through executive order to keep immigrants who came here as children from being deported.

 “The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” reads Palmieri’s memo, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond,” reads the memo. “In short, the next few weeks will tell us a lot about the Democratic Party and its long-term electoral prospects.”'

This story, reported by The Daily Caller, received no mainstream media, for which you can read left-wing, anti-President Trump and pro-US Democrat Party media, coverage. 

There's certainly been nothing about this on the President Trump hating BBC, who are still hurting over the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the last Presidential election.

An impartial news reporting organisation would report such a memo coming to light but the BBC is less interested in facts than advancing their narrative.
