When Donald Trump cruelly ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in September, many Democrats promised to use their leverage during the end-of-year budget fight to ensure that permanent protection for DACA recipients was part of the spending bill. Instead, they turned their backs on Dreamers — our families and our communities — for their own short-term political gain.
But the tables are turning. Thousands are taking action to defend the rights of immigrants, and just last night, a federal judge in San Francisco put a temporary stop on Trump's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.1 This is huge and we need to keep up the momentum!
Tell the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC): Do not support any congressional Democrat who does not support Dreamers.
