Tell Congress:
Protect Dreamers Now

The repeal of DACA created an urgent crisis for 800,000 Dreamers and our country.

Eighty-six percent of Americans support a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, who continue to do their jobs every day amid uncertainty and fear.

The average DACA recipient came to this country at the age of six. They are leaders in our companies and brave members of our military. Dreamers are important parts of our communities and work in our local businesses.

A majority of Americans agree — Congress should immediately pass bipartisan legislation to ensure that these incredible young people can continue to live, work, and contribute to the only country they know as home.

    Citing lawsuit threats from the State of Texas, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the recission of DACA, putting the lives of nearly 800,000 hardworking young Dreamers at risk. Since then, Americans across the country have taken action to protect Dreamers.
