Tell Congress: Dreamers, DED and TPS holders deserve a legislative solution

Urge your legislators to support visionary legislation that would protect our communities.

Since taking office, President Trump’s administration has taken steps to strip legal status from more than a million individuals as part of an aggressive anti-immigrant agenda. Bold legislation that would protect recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) has been introduced in the House and Senate. In the House, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019 and, in the Senate, the Dream Act and the SECURE Act, are vital to ensuring that immigrants are able to stay in this country and live with dignity.

All three bills offer a real chance to extend protections to hundreds of thousands of members of our shared communities. As this legislation advances in Congress, however, there is a risk that anti-immigrant Members of Congress may mark up the bills in ways that would harm asylum-seekers, border communities, or families of DACA and TPS holders. Join us to let every Member of Congress know they must support and pass these critical bills, while resisting harmful amendments.
