There is currently legislation in Congress that would impact millions of individuals, also known as Dreamers, who were brought to the United States as children. The proposed bipartisan Dream Act of 2017 would give Dreamers the opportunity to gain lawful permanent residence—and eventually American citizenship—if they meet an exhaustive set of criteria. The first Dream Act was introduced in Congress 16 years ago—it’s time for Congress to act to permanently protect Dreamers.
As followers of Christ, we have the opportunity to stand with our immigrant brothers and sisters during this time of great uncertainty. Will you join us in faithfully calling on your Members of Congress to support the Dream Act until a legislative solution is passed? Congress needs to hear from us—over and over again—that we believe Dreamers are a blessing to our communities.
Contact your Members of Congress to ask them
to support the Dream Act of 2017!
