Since 2012, DACA has allowed more than 800,000 immigrants brought here as children to grow in their education, careers and communities. Now the Trump administration has announced an end to this program over the next six months – forcing young immigrants to live in legal limbo in the only country they know.
In this era of fear, several legislators have stepped up to provide a legal pathway for Dreamers. The 2017 Dream Act has been introduced in both the House and Senate, and would give a legal pathway to citizenship.
As the Trump administration ends DACA, we must make it clear that protected status for Dreamers is nonnegotiable.
Make your voice count: use our action alert to tell your Senators and Representatives to save DACA and pass the Dream Act.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Sojourners.
Support DACA and the DREAM Act of 2017
As a person of faith, I am called to welcome the stranger. Since 2012, when Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was signed, the U.S.A. has become home to thousands of children looking for education, careers, and community. I strongly disagree with President Trump's decision to end the (DACA) program. It is now up to Congress to act.I urge you to do everything in your power to protect 800,000 DACA-recipients from deportation and support their right to work and study in this country. There are three things I'm hoping you will do right now: express your disagreement with the President's decision; issue a public statement of support for DACA recipients; and support a clean passage of S. 1615/H.R. 3440, the Dream Act of 2017. I am committed to standing with my immigrant brothers and sisters and, as your constituent, urge you to do the same. As a person of faith, I pray that you remember the value of welcoming the stranger and loving one's neighbor. I urge you to support DACA and the DREAM Act of 2017.
