Three Ways You Can Help #PROTECTDREAMERS
President Trump has advanced his white nationalist agenda with the decision to end the DACA program –putting 800,000 lives of immigrant youth at the mercy of a Congress that has passed no major legislation.
For the past five years, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program proved to be an unqualified success, providing new opportunities and futures for nearly 800,000 Dreamers who live, study, and work in America. The termination of this program impacts students, educators, small business owners, healthcare workers, and so many others contributing to their families, communities, and to the country they call home.
Instead of offering an immigration process that will allow a path to citizenship so that DREAMers can continue to contribute to our communities and economy, this Administration has continued its crusade against immigrant families by stripping away their legal status.
Here are some sample tweets:
- We won’t give up on our DACAmented brothers and sisters. This is the next step. We need to act now! https://actionnetwork.org/forms/call-now-protect-daca #PROTECTDREAMERS
- Revoking #DACA tramples on our core American values. It’s cruel & tears apart our families & communities. #DreamAct http://neaedjustice.org/daca
- This is yet another example of racist, hate-fueled acts by the Trump administration. The #DACA decision is immoral and un-American
