Speak Up! Congress is dithering as usual and your voice is needed. DACA, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals expires soon.
Polling in the United States consistently shows that an astounding 87% of all American citizens support bi-partisan action in Congress to protect the nearly 1.8 million Dreamers, young people who were brought into the United States by their parents as children. There is no other issue in our country where such a huge majority of Americans are in agreement. The problem is that Congress, as usual, cannot get its act together. We can change that and each of us should speak up.
Please participate in the DACA Call-in Day to Congress on Monday, February 26, 2018!
Your advocacy is critical to force Congress to realize that as American citizens we are demanding that they find a solution. The Dreamers may face deportation as soon as March 6th, unless Congress reaches a bi-partisan deal to protect them. Most of the Dreamers have never been to the country their family comes from and many don’t even speak the language of that country. In every way but officially, they are Americans; serving in our armed forces, police and fire departments, schools, churches and many other places.
Please follow these easy steps to help:
Call 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard, and press 1 to connect to your Senators. Once you are connected to each Senator’s office, please ask the person on the phone to deliver this simple message:
“I urge you to support a bipartisan, common-sense, and humane solution for Dreamers. As Americans, we should protect Dreamers from deportation and provide them with a path to citizenship. Congress should reject proposals that undermine family immigration or protections for unaccompanied children. As a person of good will, I know that families are not “chains,” but a blessing to be protected. Families in fact, are the building blocks of any decent society. I urge you to act now in a bi-partisan manner to protect the Dreamers.”
Please call 855-589-5698 a second time to reach the Capitol switchboard again, and press 2 to connect to your Representative. Once you are connected to the Representative’s office, please ask the person on the phone to deliver the same message as above.
We can make a difference if we all speak up.
