From United Church of Christ, Justice & Peace Action Network:
On February 15th the Senate voted against legislation to create a permanent pathway to citizenship for Dreamers. This crisis, manufactured by the Administration and exacerbated by Congressional gridlock, places the futures of millions of Dreamers in danger.
As an immigrant welcoming denomination, we seek to welcome the stranger and recognize the value inherent in every person. It is critical that the final legislation Congress passes also upholds those ideals.
Contact your legislators today and demand that they protect Dreamers through legislation that offers permanent protection and that doesn’t threaten family reunification or endanger other immigrant populations. There is still a crucial deadline to hit, and we need to continue putting the pressure on Congress to get something done and support the Dreamers!
