Today’s Action: Dream Act Now
Congress is back in session – and we are days away from Trump’s original March 5 deadline for DACA deportations. Thanks to a court injunction, is providing Dreamers at least a temporary respite, but until Congress passes the DREAM Act, they must live with the fear of being ripped from the only homes they have ever known at any moment.
This is not only un-American, it’s inhumane.
We need the DREAM Act for the 800,000 immigrants brought to the States as children – and who couldn’t have known that the 45th president would use their lives as a bargaining chip for an $18 billion border wall (reminder: it’s definitely us who would pay for it, not Mexico) and elimination of the lottery immigration system (see: “shithole countries”) that makes our country so rich and diverse.
Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress created this completely avoidable crisis by rescinding DACA protections and preventing Congressional passage of the DREAM Act for nearly six months. Now they are trying to leverage their own inability to responsibly govern in order to force Democrats to approve some of their most odious plans.
We aren’t biting.
Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand a permanent solution for Dreamers, clean and clear of Trump’s racist agenda. Remind Democrats to stand strong and keep fighting. Remind Republicans who’ll be voting them out this November if they refuse to a do the right thing.
PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Amazon, Apple, Google, and Roku to stop broadcasting NRA-TV, and join the vast majority of Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
