Please join us in advocating for a clean Dream Act—one focused on providing a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and not tied to proposals that would harm others we serve in the comedor, such as restrictions on access to asylum or impunity at the border—before January 19, 2018, the deadline for Congress to act on behalf of Dreamers and pass legislation to protect their status. In September, President Trump announced the repeal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to go into effect this March. Until a permanent legislative solution is in place, the futures of close to 800,000 DACA recipients remain uncertain, and the threat of deportation from the U.S.—the country in which they have grown up, the country they call home—looms over their lives.
We ask that you call your congressional representatives in Washington to voice your support for a clean Dream Act at 1-866-940-2439 or 202-224-3132. You can find a sample script here: https://www.kinoborderinitiative.org/act/. Thank you for your advocacy and action on this urgent matter.
