The House showed leadership in passing this bill, now we need to pressure the Senate to do the same! Tell your Senators to support the American Dream and Promise Act and provide a permanent solution for Dreamers and TPS and DED holders.
The Trump administration ended protections from deportation for nearly 800,000 Dreamers protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and 318,000 beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS), forcing hard-working individuals with strong family and community ties to face an uncertain future in the United States.
But this is not a future we have to accept.
The American Dream and Promise Act of 2019 would provide protection from deportation and an earned pathway to citizenship for an estimated 2.5 million Dreamers and beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure.
The average Dreamer arrived in the United States at age 8, while the average TPS beneficiary has been in the country for 22 years. Our country is stronger, safer, and more economically vibrant when all of our community members are included in our nation’s fabric.
Take action today, and don’t forget to share so others do the same!
