I have written to Rep. Chris Stewart as a constituent regarding the need to renew CHIP and to work toward bipartisan solutions for our Dreamers since the fall. To have held off on these issues until now is absurd. Congress has had plenty of time to work toward clean bills on both. I hold Rep. Stewart and his party in the majority of the legislative and executive branches responsible for the shutdown. They have made an artificial dichotomy of children's health care or continuation of DACA, and it needn't be so. As a physician and a constituent, I implore him to tap into his capacity for empathy.
