Congress has yet to act to protect immigrants who grew up in the United States as children and have no existing opportunity to pursue legal status. Often referred to as Dreamers, we know them as are our friends, coworkers, classmates, and family. They have worked tirelessly to be afforded a chance to fully thrive in our shared nation. Months before the program officially ends, tens of thousands of DACA recipients have already begun to lose their work permits. Hundreds of thousands will follow after March 6. Congress must act as quickly as possible to protect them from deportation.
Urge your representative to put a fix for DACA recipients on the agenda.
Note: DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and is pronounced DAH-cuh.
