Call Your Senators at (202)-224-3121, and Say:
“No DREAM, No Deal” on a Continuing Resolution

Time is very short. Help Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) stand up for the brave, hardworking DREAMers! Congress has to strike a deal on federal spending by midnight on Friday, March 23th, or the government will run out of money and shut down. Again, we in the Progressive Community are demanding that a clean Dream Act be part of any over all government spending bill.

Tell Congress to Pass A Clean Dream Act

DREAMers Protesting In A Senate Office

Support The DREAMers

Call the US Capitol Switchboard at (202)-224-3121, ask to be connected to your Senators’ offices. Ask to speak to (or leave a voicemail for) the staffer working on Budget issues. Say you’re their constituent and you expect them to vote NO on any Continuing Resolution (CR) that doesn’t include a clean Dream Act.

President Trump, and the Republicans in Congress continue to use DREAMers as pawns in their sinister political games. They have made it pretty clear that they have no desire to advance real solutions for the millions of undocumented people who live, work, and pursue their dreams in this country; instead, they are preparing for mass deportations.

Democrats are divided, progressives like Bernie Sanders in the Senate and Raul Grijalva in the House are continuing to press for a clean Dream Act as part of a spending bill. Others in the Democratic party leadership are concerned about a shut down, and fearing a fight with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have basically said DACA is “off the table.”

Republicans are pushing for conservative enforcement priorities, including massive new funding for the Department of Homeland Security. This means hiring more border and ICE agents, more detentions centers to house the undocumented. They also would like is see legislation defunding “sanctuary cities” and of course funds for President Trump’s wasteful, foolish border wall.

Most Democrats will certainly oppose these dangerous, wasteful policies which will only cause more harm, separating families and terrorizing immigrate communities. Most also have shown strong support for a permanent fix for DREAMers! BUT Republicans, only need about nine Senate Democrats to sign on to their spending agenda for it to pass. That’s where we come in! Action is needed now! Call your Senator!

Call the US Capitol Switchboard at (202)-224-3121, ask to be connected to your Senators’ offices. Ask to speak to (or leave a voicemail for) the staffer working on Budget issues. Say you’re their constituent and you expect them to vote NO on any Continuing Resolution (CR) that doesn’t include a clean Dream Act.
