PROTECT DACA TODAY

The Stuart Center stands in solidarity with and defence of children and youth protected by DACA and we urge you to act now on their behalf.

Earlier today the Trump administration announced its plan to phase out the DACA Program over the next six months. DACA, or "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," has provided work and educational opportunities as well as protection from deportation to immigrants brought to the US as children.  At least 800,000 Dreamers will be affected by next March unless Congress acts before then.

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO.
[1]  CALL THE WHITE HOUSE AND CONGRESS TODAY!
President Trump: (202) 456-1111 (please leave a message)
Representatives: 1-888-496-3502
Senators: 1-888-410-0619
*Please call this line 3 times to be connected with your 1 Representative and 2 Senators

Sample Script:   My name is [NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/STATE]. I am outraged that President Trump announced the end of DACA today. I urge you to do everything in your power to protect Dreamers by making sure the bipartisan Dream Act 2017 becomes law. As Catholic sister and a member of [ YOUR CONGREGATION], our faith calls us to love our neighbor. DACA recipients are contributing members of our communities. They are Americans in all things but citizenship. They deserve our protection.  Will the [SENATOR/REPRESENTATIVE] do all he/she can to pass the bipartisan Dream Act 2017, so that DACA recipients gain protection under the law? Thank you for your time.

[2]  SPEAK OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Please tweet @realDonaldTrump and your Senators/Representatives
