Operation Dream Act Now! Press Conference & Rally
January 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
A federal judge in San Francisco on Tuesday temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects certain immigrants from deportation.
As a result, DACA recipients who did not renew their status by last year’s deadline will have a chance to submit renewal applications. The decision does not, however, allow new applications to be submitted. No applications are available and more details are still pending.
While this is a relief for young people who had lost their jobs and who were living in fear of deportation, this is not the story for everyone! which means that it leaves millions of young people out who were never able to apply for the first time and who did not qualify for the program; because of this, we demand Congress, both Republicans and Democrats not to lose the urgency for a permanent solution to be done ASAP.
Now more than ever, this is the time for Democrats to vote “no” on any spending bill on January 19th if it does not include a Clean Dream Act Legislation. While we celebrate the recent news, we cannot settle down and get off track. Our asks remains the same and we will not stop until a permanent solution is given to our community.
That’s why we will be outside of the Democratic Headquarters to remind Democrats that they must stand with our community; we call on those Democrats who are on our side to put pressure to their colleagues to makes sure they stand with us.
Join Mi Familia Vota, Lucha, PP, USEE, ADAC, CASE, CLN and other local organizations to remind Congress we need them to take action now!
