In a victory for immigrants, allies, and DACA recipients across the country, the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration’s termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (or DACA) program was unlawful.
SCOTUS has spoken but ultimately only Congress can put immigrant youth on a pathway to citizenship. The Senate must take up H.R. 6, The Dream and Promise Act, and pass it immediately!
The American Dream and Promise Act would provide protection from deportation and a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure, and importantly without any harmful tradeoffs.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, people are losing their jobs—missing money for food, rent, and bills. DACA recipients are also on the frontlines of this crisis, as educators, medical professionals, custodial, service workers, and more. In fact, 27,000 DACA recipients are health care professionals. We can’t afford to lose them. Not during this crisis and not after.
Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) has already begun its move to reopen deportation cases of DACA recipients in an effort to deport them.
Acting ICE director, Matthew Albence, confirmed these plans when he made it clear that his agency would go after DACA recipients once they lost their status.
The Supreme Court decision highlights the urgent need for Congress to step in and put young immigrants on a pathway to citizenship.
Tell the Senate to pass H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act—a permanent resolution for Dreamers and beloved community members like TPS and DED holders who contribute so much to our nation.
