ACT OF SOLIDARITY

SENATORS: SUPPORT THE DREAMERS

Both houses of Congress recently introduced the Dream Act of 2017. This is a bipartisan effort to protect immigrant youth who entered the U.S. as children and know America as their only home. Qualified youth are offered the opportunity to stay in the U.S. "conditional permanent resident status" and a path to citizenship. Please contact your Senators and urge them to co-sponsor the Dream Act of 2017.

These youth would receive relief from deportation worries and would be able to remain in school and have employment eligibility through the Dept. of Homeland Security Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. They contribute to our economy, they are veterans in our military, and they are leaders in our communities. They should be allowed to stay. Lets allow them to do so!

Please contact your Senators and urge them to co-sponsor the Dream Act of 2017.

Thanks for taking action.

CONGRESS--SUPPORT THE BRIDGE ACT

SISTERS ONLINE anticipates there will be more coming from President Trump with regard to immigration, eg: the elimination of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program that enables immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to be educated and then attain a work visa if they wish to do so. As of right now, Trump has not acted on DACA, but we know that this program certainly is not safe under a Trump administration.

We believe it's time to act before President Trump ends the program. Lets be proactive on this. That's where the BRIDGE Act comes in! The BRIDGE Act would provide similar provisional protection to DACA recipients, allowing immigrants brought as children to get work permits and receive an education while delaying their deportations. The BRIDGE Act is a temporary legislative solution that would remove the immediate threat of removing DACA protections.

On February 20, legislators will be back in their home districts. Please contact them and urge them to support the BRIDGE Act.

Thanks so much for getting involved. There are so many immigrants in our country who are now living in fear. Please help them by acting and praying for them.
