Calling on Congress for the Dreamers
By Mike Hersh for Donna, Deb, Mike F., Judy, Janis, Dan, Kimberly, Bryan, Dr. Bill, and Amos—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) strongly supports The Dreamers and DACA. As a grassroots political action committee, we will only support candidates for the Presidency, the U.S. House, and U.S. the Senate who champion progressive, enlightened policies. PDA was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and U.S. politics by working inside the Democratic Party and outside with peace, justice, civil rights, environmental, and other reform movements—including immigrants’ rights organizations.
We set up an action alert to help you contact your Senators and Representative and ask them to cosponsor the bipartisan Dream Act. Also, please join PDA and our allies calling both of your Senators every day at (202) 224-3121 and asking them to cosponsor the Dream Act.
Please tell your elected officials to join Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Representatives Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) cosponsoring the Dream Act. Call both of your Senators at (202) 224-3121 every day and ask them to cosponsor the Act. This is important because of the precarious situation endangering young people who have been covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Hundreds of thousands of ‘Dreamers’ are facing deportation. Millions of heartbroken parents and entire families will have their lives upended, and we will all lose the enormous benefits from having hard-working and energetic young people as part of our communities and nation. Dreamers pay taxes and contribute in other ways to their communities. We all benefit from their inclusion in the fabric of our society. Our communities will be harmed by the divisions, distrust of government, and loss of revenue that ending DACA will cause.
We strongly support the Dreamers and oppose the horror of unwarranted, unwise deportations. Call both of your Senators at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to cosponsor the Dream Act. Click here to use our action to contact your Senators and Representative.
This latest assault on some of this nation’s most vulnerable people is an affront to us all. So join us calling on all members of Congress to cosponsor the Dream Act. Call both of your Senators at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to cosponsor the Dream Act. Then, click here to donate $500, $50, or whatever you can afford now to help PDA’s organizing against Trump.
