The future of 800,000 people in the United States is up in the air. The temporary extension that has funded the government will expire tomorrow and Congress will now have to decide whether they will pass a spending bill that includes a clean DREAM Act or if they will put the lives of thousands at risk of deportation.
Our Revolution has supported the work of the Our Dream coalition to recruit over 11,000 people and organize nearly 100 actions to put pressure on Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act. The 23 partner organizations who make up the Our Dream campaign have brought us close to securing permanent protection for Dreamers, but we need your help! We need you to take action and call your Senators today.
Some say that we can wait to pass legislation but each day that the DREAM Act does not pass, 122 undocumented youth lose their protection and more undocumented youth are at risk of detention and deportation. There is no time to waste.
