Dream Act: Action Before December 6th

Early December is a key time to advocate for the passage of Dream Act legislation which would provide protection and a path to citizenship for undocumented young people, including DACA recipients.

Some members of Congress have expressed an interest in addressing the situation of these young people, possibly by December 6th. While timing is not certain, it is important to send a message to Congress that we want these protections, we want them now, and we do not want them to be tied to detention or border enforcement legislation.

The Ignatian Solidarity Network and the Jesuit Conference’s Office of Justice and Ecology have developed a letter to be utilized by schools, churches, and other groups. It is our hope that your institution or group can commit to hand-delivering signed letters to district/state offices of members of the U.S. House and Senate by December 6th.
