America made a promise to Dreamers that if they stayed in school and got a job that we had their back. Right now, 535 representatives will decide if America keeps that promise by passing the bi-partisan Dream Act that would protect Dreamers and offer them a path to citizenship.
And we must act now because the Trump administration is not yet done.
The Trump administration is also threatening the lives of over 320,000 immigrants under TPS (Temporary Protected Status).
These actions against Dreamers and TPS holders put the lives of over 1 million people at stake.
Congress has a choice: Pass a clean DREAM Act, protect TPS holders and secure a place in America for Dreamers and TPS holders or fail to act and deport over a million people from their homes, separating families and hurting the U.S. economy.
Here are the 3 things you can do right now to help us keep our promise to Dreamers and pass the DREAM Act:
