Pass the Dream & Promise Act Now!

Dreamers (who were brought here as minors) and recipients of Temporary Protective Status are educators and students, our colleagues, neighbors, and friends. They are teaching in our schools, organizing in our union, serving in the military, and contributing to our communities. This country is their home.

Now there is finally a bill in Congress to give this group of aspiring Americans the rights and protections they deserve.

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives introduced an updated Dream Act that gives hope and dignity to aspiring new Americans while aiming to provide a pathway to citizenship for the millions of individuals known as “Dreamers” who came to the United States as minors.

The introduction of the Dream and Promise Act of 2019 (H.R. 6) reflects the tireless work of legislators, students, activists, and organizations on behalf of immigrants. Together, these advocates are exhibiting their respect and concern for Dreamers and other beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) from ongoing attacks by the Trump administration.

The bill would help approximately 3.6 million Dreamers, including the 800,000 who have been shielded from deportation and granted a work permit under DACA. The legislation provides protection and certainty to our neighbors, friends, many who are students and educators in our schools. The bill not only helps families stay together and secure long-term economic stability but also enables thousands of students to pursue their education and career goals by opening financial aid and college loans.
