Tell Congress: Save DACA and pass the DREAM Act in 2017
2012, DACA has allowed more than 800,000 immigrants brought here as children to
grow in their education, careers and communities. Since the Trump
administration has announced an end to this program, young immigrants have been
forced to live in legal limbo in the only country they know.
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
end of 2017 quickly approaches, we must demand that Congress pass a clean
version of the Dream Act before the end of the year. This clean bill must be
free from any increase in funding for a border wall or any other forms of
increased security. Dreamers have waited long enough and we all must demand that our
Senators and Representatives take action now.
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. 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. It is now up to Congress to act and protect Dreamers. Congress must pass a clean version of the Dream Act - one without provisions for border wall construction or any other forms of increased security.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. I am committed to standing with my immigrant sisters and brothers, and as your constituent, urge you to do the same. As a person of faith, I pray that you remember the value of caring for the stranger in our country and loving one's neighbor. I urge you to support Dreamers and pass a clean Dream Act before the end of the year.
