Protect Immigrant Youth: Pass Dream Act Now!
Members of Congress,
My name is Adrian Reyna, and I am protected from deportation because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. My sister has DACA, as well as many of my friends and family members.
Nearly 800,000 people with DACA without the risk of deportation have been able to stay with our families. We provide critical income for our families. We’ve made a living, bought new homes, started new jobs, gave our mothers and fathers the support they’ve given us.
Since the Trump administration ended the DACA program, we need you to act swiftly to pass a clean Dream Act that protects those impacted by this decision right away.
Passing permanent protection for immigrant youth in the form of a Dream Act that stays true to our values: no border wall, no more detention, no more deportations for the protections of those impacted. Congress needs to pass a the Dream Act that does not include funding for enforcement that would endanger other immigrants. I will not put a target on my mother or others members of my community in order to get relief for immigrant youth.
Why is this important?
**DACA has been terminated - but we will deliver your signatures to Members of Congress showing the support that Americans have for people impacted by this announcement so that they quickly move to pass a Dream Act right away that isn't used as a vehicle for anti-immigrant policy**
This is important, because hundreds of thousands of workers, families, and immigrants depend on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. If enough of us demand that General Kelly take a stance in favor of keeping the program, we can be a step closer to protecting nearly 800,000 people from deportation.
