Justice for DREAMers

In attempting to become productive members of society, immigrant children face their biggest challenge as they reach young adulthood. They find themselves limited due to their legal status and often encounter barriers, discrimination, and oppression. Due to their circumstance, legal employment is not only unattainable but often many resort to low paying jobs that make it difficult to support themselves. Although many DREAMers want to pursue an education, low paying jobs do not allow this to be a feasible goal.
While the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was a temporary solution for many immigrant children, DACA was terminated by Donald Trump on March 5th, 2018. To find a long-term future for the undocumented children, we request that you support the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The primary goal will be to provide conditional legal status to thousands of immigrant children and provide a long-term path to citizenship.
The DREAM Act will prevent Dreamers from deportation, allow them to work and pursue higher education. If only half of the Dreamers graduate from college, there is a potential of over $728.4 billion of GDP growth over the course of a decade. All America will benefit.
