The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that DACA is unlawful — impacting the lives of millions of people across the country and harming communities and the economy.
This ruling makes it absolutely clear that the courts will continue down the same path that ends in terminating the DACA program, with a final blow to come in the months ahead as the case progresses. This deeply disappointing decision from the 5th Circuit makes even more clear the fate of DACA in the courts — and without legislation protecting DACA recipients passing this year, we could see nearly 700,000 DACA recipients lose work authorization, lose protection from deportation, and have their lives thrown into chaos in the very near future.
That is why we are urging you to call your senator and tell them to pass permanent legislative protections for DACA recipients and Dreamers before the end of the year.
The urgency for Congress to act now, in 2022, is higher than it has ever been. It is important for existing DACA recipients to renew while this ability is still available by the courts.
The bottom line is that Congress absolutely must act right now or else the consequences will be a disaster. Join us in urging Congress to immediately pass legislation that provides permanent legislative protections for DACA recipients and Dreamers this year.
Please call your senator today.
