Stop Deportations & create welcome

Support the DREAM Act

A new Senate DREAM Act was introduced at the end of July 2017. If passed, the bill would mean that millions of undocumented immigrant youth would have a route to permanent legal status. You should contact your Senators and ask them to support the bill. Find your Senator using the Congressional Switchboard (202)224-3121 or here.

Protect DACA

Much remains unknown about DACA. Call your Attorney General (1-832-610-3896) and your Governor and ask them to publicly support the DACA program.

(More information about the new DREAM Act bill and DACA can be found via United We Dream.)
