Clean Dream Act Now
This petition had 30,299 supporters
As the daughter of immigrants and a first-generation college student, I’ve always been surrounded by inspiring, powerful, and hard-working people. I’ve learned what it means to not just dream of a better life, but to sweat and bleed for it only to have our government treat us like criminals, or as if we are less than human.
Young immigrants deserve to live with dignity in the country, to reach for our dreams without a target on our backs. Sign the petition to call on Congress to pass the Dream Act.
Last year, the Trump administration announced that it would be ending the DACA program, which gave deportation relief to 700,000 undocumented people who arrived here as children – many of them my peers and friends. Now, he’s put it up to Congress to find a solution for so many young people, and legislators are using our lives as a political football to argue over funding for harmful agendas like Trump’s Border Wall.
We’re no longer leaving it to legislators to decide the fate of our communities. We’re raising our voices to demand action which protects young immigrants without throwing our parents under the bus.
We stand on the shoulders of our elders; our successes are due to our parents. We won’t accept a Dream Act which criminalizes them, separates families, or which wastes money on unnecessary border security.
We deserve a clean Dream Act – now. Join our movement to stand with immigrants today.
