ACTION ALERT: Pass the DREAM Act
On September 05, President Trump announced an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA has allowed nearly 800,000 immigrant youth to work, go to school, raise a family, and flourish in the United States. Current DACA recipients will see their protection revoked starting in six months, and no new DACA applications filed after today will be considered. The consequences of repealing DACA are immediate, devastating, and profound.
We call on Congress to immediately enshrine the protections of DACA into law by passing the bipartisan DREAM Act. We urge you to call your representatives today and ask that they protect our immigrant youth.
Columbans in the United States and around the world will continue to walk arm-in-arm with our migrant sisters and brothers, knowing by the light of faith that human dignity is more important than one's legal status.
