We Need YOU to Take Action NOW!



Reflecting the nationwide support for the Dreamers, multiple bills have been introduced by congressional representatives from both political parties in both the Senate (S) and House of Representatives (HR). 

But no bills have been scheduled for hearings – let alone votes.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH DREAMERS -- we need your help now to make sure that federal legislation is passed in 2017 to protect them. In order for any bill to go into effect, it must be passed by both the Senate and the House and signed by the President. Then the Department of Homeland Security needs to develop implementation procedures. That is why it is imperative that hearings and votes get scheduled now.
 
Contact your Congressperson and both Florida Senators. Call, email or visit each of them. It takes just a few minutes, and is so easy to do. 
●    State your name and zip code. Calls and messages from outside their district are not counted.
●    Like most Americans you support Dreamers remaining in the country permanently
●    Ask them to demand that hearings and votes for Dream Act legislation be scheduled for this calendar year,         and to support:   
        ○    A “clean” bill – one that is not tied to other immigration related issues such as funding the wall with Mexico or stripping current protections for unaccompanied minors from Central America. 
        ○    A bill that provides Dreamers legal status and a pathway to citizenship.

LEGISLATION MUST BE PASSED AND SIGNED IN 2017 
We do not want hearings or passage of legislation postponed until early 2018, since some DACA recipients will begin to lose their protective status on March 5, 2018. At that time several will be subject to deportation to countries they did not grow up in.
