122 young people. Every 24 hours.
That's how many DACA recipients are having their futures jeopardized daily, as they lose their status. Over the next four months, a total of 22,000 young people are at risk of losing protection since the administration ended DACA this fall.
But it's not just 122 lives that are affected each day. This hurts all of us. Schools are losing great students. Businesses are losing valued employees. Families and communities are being torn apart.
Congress cannot wait another minute to pass legislation that permanently protects these young people.
Today is a national call-in day to encourage our representatives to pass the DREAM Act -- will you make a call, too?
The DREAM Act is the only acceptable legislative solution that provides permanent protection and a path to citizenship for DACA recipients.
OFA supporters have rallied around it. We've hosted and attended events all over the country, including in Richmond, California -- where attendees stood up for 8,000 local DACA recipients and their families -- and in South Carolina, where local students and residents came together to show their support.
But we have to keep up the momentum.
Some congressional leaders still want to use DACA recipients as a "bargaining chip" for other anti-immigrant policies -- like funding a senseless border wall, or expanding this administration's indiscriminate deportation force.
We can't let that happen. We need a clean DREAM Act. Call a key representative and say so:
