It has been 131 long days since Trump ended the DACA program, upending the lives of hundreds of thousands of DREAMers and their families across the country. Trump has also ended protected status for Haitian and Salvadoran immigrants, another part of his all-out anti-immigrant assault.
This is no longer an immigration policy debateâ€¦ passing the DREAM Act is a moral imperative for Congress.
Every single member of Congress needs to decide which side they are on: the side of divisiveness, racism, white supremacy, and hate or the side of American values of freedom and equality for all. The DREAM Act as it exists is a bipartisan bill, and there is no reason for Republicans to be wasting time and playing politics with young peoplesâ€™ lives.
This fight is about who we are as a country. Itâ€™s about our values. And itâ€™s about every person who could be deported from their home because of the nativists and white supremacists in the White House and Congress.
Thank you for all you do,
