News sources are reporting that President Trump could terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as soon as tomorrow. Ending DACA would place the nearly 800,000 DREAMers whom the program allows to work and live legally in the United States at immediate risk of deportation. Right now, Christians have the opportunity to speak into this moment. Congress needs to hear that people of faith support DREAMers and long term solutions to our broken immigration system.
Call President Trump: (202) 456-1111 (please leave a message)
Sample Script: “My name is [Name] from [City, State]. As a Christian, I support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and strongly oppose any attempt to terminate it. DACA has given nearly 800,000 young people the opportunity to pursue their dreams. I urge you to maintain the DACA and stand in solidarity with immigrant youth.”

In addition, I call on you to cosponsor The DREAM Act of 2017, which would provide DREAMers a path to citizenship. DACA must remain in place until the DREAM Act passes.”
