Defend Immigrant Youth

The administration plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in March 2018. DACA has protected approximately 800,000 undocumented youth from deportation, allowing them to attend school, work, and contribute more fully to our nation. We demand Congress to find a permanent solution by passing a clean DREAM Act to protect undocumented immigrants.

It's Time for Congress to Pass the Dream Act

    Tell Congress to act now. We must work together to urge Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act and provide relief for DACA recipients who are now at risk of being deported once the program ends.  Help us protect immigrant youth.

    1. Call your Senators and Members of Congress and tell them to support the DREAM Act.
