An Important Message From Peter Schweyer

Rep. Schweyer calls President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program cruel and irresponsible.

DACA was authorized in 2012 by then President Obama as a compromise between his administration and Congress after the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act failed. DACA provides temporary deportation deferral to individuals who were brought to the United States illegally as children, known as “Dreamers,” who pass vetting so they may live, study and work legally in the only country they know as home.

“My neighbors of all diverse backgrounds and nationalities contribute to the fabric of Allentown, Pennsylvania and America. When we go to each other’s barbecues on our block, I don’t ask them their status. Why? Because we’re one community. We should be embracing our diversity. It’s high time for the federal government to take a stand on behalf of basic human decency,” said Schweyer.

Statement: Allentown Mayor Should Resign

August 2017

“As someone born and raised in the city of Allentown, someone who has dedicated my entire adult life serving the people of my city and is proud to follow in the footsteps of my father and his 33 years serving the city of Allentown, I am truly dismayed and saddened. Ed Pawlowski should tender his resignation as mayor immediately if he truly values Allentown and its people.

City Hall needs to be a place government works to move Allentown forward so it can remain an amazing place to live, work and raise a family.”

Statement Regarding August 12 th Domestic Terror Attack and Neo-Nazi Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia

August 19, 2017 

“Like so many people on August 12th and in the days that followed, I took to Twitter. There I expressed my outrage at the Neo-Nazis and those leaders who encourage them, offered my sincere sympathy for those who died and restated my commitment to be part of the solution to America’s racial divide. But honestly, I had more to say.

First and foremost, the unspeakable hate, racism and violence expressed in Charlottesville by Neo-Nazis, the KKK, White Supremacist and other members of the ‘alt-right’ are disgusting and reprehensible. Those people and organizations that espouse those beliefs are un-American and must be defeated if we are ever able to move forward as one nation.

Further, Americans who are on the right side of unity, compassion, love and respect must soundly rebuke President Donald J. Trump, those in his Administration, members of Congress and others in positions of power who give quarter to the forces of racism, hatred and bigotry. As Elie Wiesel once said, we must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
