'Tis the Season to Pass a Clean Dream Act!
The future of over 800,000 immigrant youth is dependent on Congress passing the Dream Act. Over the weekend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated “there is no crisis” prompting a legislative solution for Dreamers. That could not be further from the truth. Already, nearly 11,000 DACA recipients have lost their status. Each day that Congress fails to act, an estimated 122 additional DACA recipients lose their ability to work and are at risk of deportation.
Tomorrow, more than 10,000 immigrant youth and their allies will be taking action in Washington D.C., demanding that Congress pass a clean Dream Act by Christmas.
