This is an all hands on deck moment. By next Friday, Congress needs to pass the Dream Act. We've been asking a lot of you lately, but this is a crisis.
Since Trump terminated the DACA program in September, more than 11,700 recipients have lost their protections. Over the next two weeks, another 2,000 young immigrants will lose DACA. We can't wait any longer.
It's been three months since the president terminated the DACA program. Already more than 11,000 DACA recipients have lost their status, their ability to work, and their protection from deportation. Every day that Congress fails to take action another 122 immigrant youth lose their DACA. This is a crisis.
'Tis the season to pass the 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.
As mothers, our priority is to keep our children safe and to help them achieve their dreams. We would do anything to ensure their protection and well-being. That's why we're calling on all moms in Tennessee to stand in solidarity with Dreamers' Moms and urge Congress to pass a clean Dream Act now!
