To Congress:

Your inaction on the Dream Act is a moral disaster.

As Dreamers, over 17,000 of us have lost protection from deportation since the President dismantled the DACA program. Over a million of us live in fear of being torn away from our homes and families if Congress fails to act.

As Jews, we recognize the dangers of President Trump’s inhumane policies and scapegoating of immigrants — we’ve seen this before. We stand with our immigrant neighbors on the side of justice, not oppression, of liberation, not deportation.

That’s why, on January 17th, American Jews and Dreamers from across the country came to D.C. for a bold historic action at the Capitol, joining the brave activists and allies fighting to make Congress listen.

We demand a Dream Act now.
Queremos un Dream Act ahora.
