Dear Colleague,

Secretary of Education Betsy Devos recently issued guidance explaining how important it is that limited funding from the CARES Act being used for students meets the following criteria: “U.S. citizenship or eligible noncitizen; a valid Social Security number;
registration with Selective Service (if the student is male); and a high school diploma, GED, or completion of high school in an approved homeschool setting.”

Millions of United States citizens currently studying in Institutions of Higher Education are primed to make extraordinary contributions to our communities and our economy for years to come. These students are the next generation of health care workers,
first responders, and teachers. During this unique crisis, we must not lose sight of our promising future for the sake of spending our limited funding on illegal immigrants while American citizens are neglected.

Join Rep. Banks and I in supporting Secretary Devos’ guidance in putting Americans first as we combat the coronavirus pandemic. If you have any questions or wish to sign on, please contact Peter Holland (
in the Lamborn office or Tanner Spence ( in the Banks office.
The deadline to sign on is 5pm Monday, May 4th.
