ACTION OF THE WEEK: Compassion for Dreamers

The Dream Act (S1615/H.R.3340) is on the ropes and needs your URGENT action.  Congress proposes to vote on the Dream Act this Friday.  Please urge your congressperson to support a clean Dream Act.  

DACA recipients are still without a road to lawful permanent resident (LPR) status or U.S. citizenship. Meanwhile, on September 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced that it is ending the program, then were forced to stay that action through court injunction. This has left people who either still have DACA or whose DACA has expired in limbo with respect to their future in the only country they’ve known as home since they were children. The Dream Act of 2017 is a strong bill that includes a path to U.S. citizenship. In its various iterations, the Dream Act has long enjoyed bipartisan support in the congress and the overwhelming support of the American people.  However, congress now proposes adding elements to the bill that fund increased interior enforcement, detention centers, and a mandatory E-verify system.  This compromised Dream Act will protect our Dreamers while endangering the wider immigrant community.  We need a clean DREAM ACT.
