The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has given hundreds of thousands of undocumented children a chance to chase their dreams.
But today, they live under constant uncertainty.
Until Congress provides permanent protections, DACA recipients could be ripped from the lives they've built and the people they love.
Send a message: It's time to protect Dreamers' families and futures!
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has given hundreds of thousands of undocumented children a chance to chase their dreams. Now, more than 200,000 American kids have at least one parent who's a Dreamer.
But now, their futures are at risk. Judge Hanen of the Southern District of Texas recently maintained that DACA is unlawful. While this disappointing ruling does not affect current DACA recipients, it keeps Dreamers and their loved ones in an agonizing legal limbo.
Judge Hanen called on Congress to take responsibility for this issue. As an advocate for children, I urge you to take action and finally pass the DREAM Act.
The fate of DACA and Dreamers lies in your hands. Without permanent protections, they could be ripped from their homes at any moment — tearing families apart.
Every person, no matter where they're born, has a right to a safe, bright future. I urge you to pass the DREAM Act and honor Congress's promise to keep families together!
