Dreamers need you!

The Senate this week is expected vote on whether to give Dreamers a pathway to citizenship or to continue to put them at risk of deportation.

Immigration is a hunger issue. People without documentation are more likely to live in poverty and struggle to put food on the table. A pathway to citizenship will help Dreamers keep good jobs and stay out of poverty.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your senator and tell them to vote YES on the bipartisan Coons/McCain Amendment #1955, also known as the Uniting and Securing America (USA) Act of 2018 (S. 2367). 

The bipartisan USA Act would provide Dreamers with a pathway to citizenship, address the push factors of migration from Central America, and enact a metric-based border security strategy.

Passing a bipartisan solution to help Dreamers is more important than ever. If Congress fails to act, nearly 1 million Dreamers will be at risk of deportation starting March 5.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your senators and urge them to pass the Coons/McCain Amendment #1955 (USA Act) and keep families together. 

A pathway to citizenship will help Dreamers keep good jobs and stay out of poverty.
