On September 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administration’s decision bring an end to the DACA program. DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, has allowed nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth who were brought to the United States as children to obtain work permits, attend school, and contribute openly to our economy without fear of deportation. In many cases, these youth, known as DREAMers, grew up in the United States and want to give back to society and raise their own families in the only nation they know as home. By ending DACA and its protections, the administration has made DREAMers vulnerable to deportation or detention.
Take action now to protect DREAMers from deportation.
