“Clean-Dream-Act” or bust.

“I was a stranger and you welcomed me”. Matthew 25:35 

Who are Dream Heroes? They are members of Congress who pledge to protect Dreamers. If Congress hasn’t passed the Dream Act by Dec. 8—when funding for the government expires—then they will insist on including it as part of the December spending bill. The pledge is that they will only vote for a continuing resolution (“CR”) if it has the Dream Act included. A vote on a continuing resolution without the Dream Act is a vote to deport Dreamers.

Minimal Script to thank someone for their support: I’m writing to thank Rep./Senator  [___] for standing with the 800,000 threatened Dreamers . Please join with the other supporters who will refuse to vote on a continuing resolution unless it includes a clean  Dream Act.

Minimal Script for those not on the right side of history yet: I’m calling from zip code [___ to ask Rep./Senator [___] to stand with the  25 Democratic representatives who are refusing to proceed with a continuing resolution until passing a clean  Dream Act.

More script if you want it: We must ensure that Dreamers can go to school, work, and serve in the military—but not in exchange for a border wall or increased deportation of other immigrants.
