Postcard Signing -- DREAM Act

When President Trump rescinded the DACA Executive Order -- 800,000 young people were put at risk for deportation. Their parents brought them to the US as children, and they have grown up here. To protect these DREAMERs -- federal legislation needs to be passed, signed and implemented in 2017. 

Bills have been introduced by both political parties in both the US Senate and House of Representatives; but no bills have been scheduled for hearings – let alone votes. 

After service on Sunday we will have a table with stamped postcards and address labels for both FL Senators and the local House Representatives. Ask them to demand that hearings and votes for Dream Act legislation be scheduled for this calendar year. 

It will take you just a few minutes to write the cards -- but it is so important to add your voice to the national appeal for a permanent solution that provides a pathway to legal status for these young people.
