Make the Pledge to Fight for the Dream Act

The end of DACA is a tragedy for our nation. It means mass deportation. Period.

Mass deportation of our coworkers, our neighbors, and our brothers and sisters. The political games with people’s lives must stop.

This is about basic human decency. This is about who we are as a people and what kind of country we want to be. The fate of hundreds of thousands of young Americans remains in limbo. Businesses will lose valued employees, students will disappear from classrooms, and fear will grow in communities across the country.

It is time for Congress to act. Dreamers deserve a fair shot, and the freedom to give back to the only nation they have ever called home. I’m asking you to contact your members of Congress and demand they pass a clean DREAM Act. Will you pledge to do that for me?

Yes, I will

Over the last five years, members of Congress have argued that immigration reform should go through the legislative process, not by executive order. Now is their chance to make that a reality, let’s hold them to it.

I am always fighting for you and your family in Congress. This time, I need your help. Will you join me in calling on Congress to act immediately and pass a clean DREAM Act?

To say these DACA recipients are good, hardworking Americans is an understatement. They’re so much more. Stripping them of this legal protection betrays our American values.

We’re going to fight like hell,
