Today’s Action: Demand Congress act to protect Dreamers ahead of tomorrow’s vote

When President Trump unilaterally removed protection for America’s Dreamers, more than 65% of the American public knew that he was wrong.

Anyone who’s ever met one of the 800,000 innocent young people — each of whom must now live with the fear of being ripped from their homes and sent to a country they have never known — can see that it is cruel and inhumane.

But if you’ve never before paused to think about the turmoil that Trump has cruelly forced on these young men and women, surely you must have been moved by the eight-hour, record-setting speech that Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi gave on the House Floor yesterday.

She gave us yet another impassioned reminder that lives are in the balance as a result of Republican games and it has to stop.

Contact your Members of Congress today and demand they take immediate action to protect Dreamers by passing a clean DREAM Act.

It’s been just two weeks since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promised to hold a vote on a DREAM Act and with less than a month until Trump is planning to begin deportations on March 6, we have yet to hear a peep from the Senate Republican Leader.

This is unacceptable.

Even a majority of Republicans support protecting Dreamers, but until McConnell holds a vote on a Dream Act, they must live with threat of deportation beginning next month.

This delay is in defiance of the people’s will, and it’s as irresponsible as it is heartless.

Call 202.224.3121 (or get emails at this link) and tell you Members of Congress that you’re still standing with Dreamers and you expect them to as well.

Enough games, enough distractions. Lives and livelihoods will be lost if Congress does not act soon to protect Dreamers. Let your Member of Congress know that if they don’t do what is right, their jobs will be lost too.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Trump America doesn’t need a fascist military parade down Pennsylvania Ave, and join the vast majority of Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
