President Trump’s cruel and reprehensible decision to end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) with a six-month delay is inhumane and devastating for families and communities across the country. This program helped over 800,000 children and young people to live and work in the United States without of fear of deportation. The children that DACA protects were children who were brought here when they were so young they had no choice in the matter. They have grown up here in the United States and they have no home other than the United States. We cannot allow so many innocent children to suffer under our watch.
The Latino Action Network calls on Congress to pass permanent legislation that protects these young people. We demand that Congress pass a “clean” DREAM Act to permanently protect Dreamers from deportation that DOES NOT tie the lives of these 800,000 young men and women to a pointless and expensive border wall or escalated border enforcement funding.
We need your help in the months ahead to urge New Jersey’s Congressional delegation to act to protect the Dreamers that are in danger of being deported due to the President’s action. Here is what you can do:
1 - Contact your Congressmember and demand they protect the nearly 1 million DREAMers and support a CLEAN Dream Act.
