Tell Congress: Pass the Dream Act Now!

The Dream Act (S.1615/H.R.3440) offers permanent protection and a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers — undocumented immigrants brought to the United States at a young age by their parents.

Passing this bipartisan legislation is more important than ever. If Congress does not act soon, Dreamers could lose their protected status under The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and risk deportation. There is no time to lose. 

Call (800-826-3688) or email your member of Congress. Tell them to protect Dreamers by passing the Dream Act now! 

As people of faith, we are called by God to welcome and respond to the needs of the stranger, the immigrant - no matter their legal status. Offering a pathway to citizenship to Dreamers means they could continue to contribute to their communities through work, military service, and schooling.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your member of Congress and urge them to pass the Dream Act now.

 

There is no time to lose.
