The October 5th deadline for Dreamers to apply to renew their status is here.
And now that the option to renew is over, they face impending uncertainty as they’ll be forced to leave the only homes they’ve ever known here over the next two years.

Trump may have ended DACA, but there’s another option hanging in the balance. And it is one that could protect these 800,000 youths. Can you help make sure Congress does the right thing and protects Dreamers? >>

Members of Congress from both sides came together, creating the Dream Act of 2017 to provide these youth a pathway to legal permanent status and citizenship. It would protect Dreamers—valued members and contributors to our communities and economy. But YOU need to help GET IT PASSED >>

We need to make sure it’s a clean Dream Act. Humans aren’t a commodity you can trade. Yet some policymakers want to use Dreamers as a bargaining chip. We need Congress to pass the Dream Act—without trading its passage for ramped up border security and deportation force. The future of 800,000 classmates, coworkers, and neighbors is not a trade-off. Tell Congress: YES to a clean Dream Act and NO to increased border security!
