When President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Sept. 5, he asked Congress to act to ensure that these 700,000 young people would be able to stay in the only country they call home.
It’s been over 2 months, and we’re still waiting. And now the President and GOP Senators have reportedly agreed to keep a DACA fix out of any year-end budget deal, shutting down one of the most promising opportunities to give Dreamers the peace of mind they desperately need.
This is a cruel, heartless move, and we cannot let it stand. We need you to call on members of Congress to take urgent action in support of Dreamers before the year ends. The clock is ticking.
The DREAM Act, a bipartisan bill with widespread public support, would allow young immigrants who are Americans at heart to become Americans on paper. We have a solution. Now all we need is for Congress to do right by Dreamers and bring this bill to a vote before they leave Washington for the holidays.
