Pope Francis has called on us to pray and provide support for our brothers and sisters who are migrants and refugees through the historic campaign, Share the Journey. Follow his call by speaking out on behalf of young people in our communities who are facing an uncertain future because of the Administration’s recent decision to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Currently, there are approximately 800,000 young people who are face the loss of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections, which include work authorization and protection from deportation. DACA youth and the larger DREAMer community need legislative protection from Congress to ensure that they are not deported from the only home they have ever known. This week, your members of Congress need to hear from you that you care about DREAMers. Send a message to your members of Congress now urging passage of the DREAM Act quickly so as not to uproot the lives of so many young people who’ve made enormous contributions to our communities and our economy.
