Protect the DREAM Act!

Posted on 28. Sep, 2017 by in Action Alerts

President Trump has left 800,000 lives in limbo by rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Many Dreamers are sons and daughters of farm workers. They are also doctors, lawyers, researchers, students—all of them supporting America. This is the only home most of them have known.

President Trump said Congress should pass a law to address this issue. The law they proposed is called the DREAM Act. We need your immediate help or the DREAM Act could die in committee.To get the bill out of committee for a vote, we need to collect 218 signatures from Members of Congress. Many Members are saying they want a vote. If they sign the discharge petition, there can and will be a vote.

Take action today by writing your Congressmember and telling him or her to sign the discharge petition to bring the DREAM Act to a vote. Tell your Congressmember that saying you support Dreamers without doing everything you can to pass this legislation is the same as doing nothing at all. Words don’t matter; action does.
