Tell Congress: Protect Dreamers!
Due to congressional inaction since the announcement that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) would end, millions of young adults in our nation are uncertain of their future.
It is unconscionable that Congress has played political games with the lives of our nation’s young Dreamers and has failed to pass a solution. This is urgent!
Protect Dreamers today:
Call your Representative: 1-888-422-4555
Then, call your Senators: 1-888-885-1748
(Call twice to reach both your Senators)
When you call, here’s what you might say:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am a constituent calling from [CITY/TOWN]. I am a member of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice and I’m calling to ask the [REPRESENTATIVE/SENATOR] to support a DACA fix that includes a path to citizenship. Because the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has stopped accepting renewals, more than 700,000 young people will go without the opportunity to work, raise a family, and pursue their dreams. This goes against my faith teaching. My faith teaches that we should love our neighbor as ourselves. Dreamers are our neighbors and their home is here. This is a core part of my faith belief, and I hope that the [REPRESENTATIVE/SENATOR] will agree with my view. What is their stance?”
