- 11,000+ DACA-recipients have already lost their status (http://ampr.gs/2AagO0Z). This is not the America we’ve worked so hard to build. Congress must act before the end of the year to allow these young people to continue contributing to our cities, states, and country. #DreamActNow #WeValueDreamers
- After passing the Dream Act, it would still take a minimum of 7 months for #Dreamers to obtain status (http://ow.ly/2w7Y30guqCq). Congress must take action ASAP! #DreamActNow
Also, please help amplify the letter Rep. Taylor (R-VA) and 33 House Republicans sent to Speaker Ryan this week asking him to prioritize DACA before the holidays. Share the letter with your networks and thank the Republican signatories for standing with Dreamers, particularly since many of these Members are now being targeted by anti-immigrant groups. Suggested tweets can be found below.
Please spread the word today! #DREAMAct
