Stand With PDA As We Stand With Dreamers
By Mike Fox and Dan O’Neal for Donna, Mike H., Amos, Janis, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, Judy, Dr. Bill and the rest of the PDA team.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has provided legal protection for hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to the United States by their families. President Trump repealed DACA on September 5, 2017, threatening to divide families, pull students out of schools, and force Dreamers to quit their jobs.
The repeal of DACA is President Trump’s attempt to push the immigrant community back into the shadows.
We at Progressive Democrats Of America and a broad coalition of progressive organizations including Our Revolution, Democracy Spring, and Presente are launching a campaign led by Dreamers to pressure key elected officials to support the Clean Dream Act – a bill which would provided protected status for vulnerable immigrants who need it most. PDA chapters and members from all over the country will be taking action to ensure protected status for Dreamers nation wide.
Together, we are fighting for the entire immigrant community. We won DACA in 2012 by organizing, marching, and taking direct action.We are being called to take action again and fight for an even greater policy – the Clean DREAM Act.
We need you in this fight. It doesn’t matter if you have zero experience advocating for immigrants, and it doesn’t matter if have never been a part of a political movement. All you need to be successful in this fight is a commitment to the cause.
Republicans need Democratic votes to pass the omnibus spending bill coming up for a vote on December 8th. This is our last chance to use our political power and strength to push both parties to get the clean DREAM Act into the spending bill, and back into law.
Dreamer families, our communities, and all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States will not give up on this fight. Will you join us?
There are so many brave undocumented people who are coming out of the shadows, showing their faces, and risking deportation for justice. Join us as we continue to fight for #ourdream.
