    The Message

    Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC),

    Do not support congressional Democrats who do not support Dreamers, and refuse to support those who vote for the spending bills without a clean DREAM Act.

    More than 14,000 Dreamers have already lost their work permits and protection from deportation and every day that Congress waits to pass the DREAM Act, 122 more lose their legal status. Democratic leaders who have claimed to support undocumented youth have a clear choice — they either fight to secure the votes needed to block any spending bill that doesn’t include a clean Dream Act, or they choose to deport Dreamers. 

    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.
