American Palestinian Women’s Association believes in our young DREAMers

29 Sep

We call President Trump and Congress to commit to the continuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, which was established by the Obama Administration via executive order in 2012.

DACA allows young migrant immigrants who entered the country without documents to receive two-years period of deferred action from deportation and the eligibility for work permits. We call on President Trump and Congress to uphold and protect the basic human rights of DACA recipients and their families.

Targeting DACA recipients and other immigrant communities will devastate the lives of thousands of young people and their families, and unnerve the entire immigrant community across our nation.

We believe in our DREAMers and call President Trump and Congress to protect them, their families, and other immigrant communities who have meaningfully contributed to our society. Doing otherwise would not improve our national security,  but would painfully separate young people from their families, and traumatize their communities.

These young DREAMers have positively contributed to our communities and country and deserve our collective support. We urge the Trump Administration and Congress to come together and pass bipartisan legislation to allow them to remain in the United States.
