Dream warriors, Immigrant youth and allies all over the country, will lead Operation Dream Act Now - leading school walkouts and mobilizing thousands to Capitol Hill to demand that Congress pass a clean Dream Act by December November 9 marks over two months since Trump ended DACA, and one year since he was elected as president. If you’re outraged at Trump for killing DACA, for fulfilling a sick white supremacist scheme to terrorize immigrant youth and their families, we invite YOU to join hundreds of Dream Defenders: immigrant youth, allies, business leaders, and people of faith are descending on the Capitol to resist Trump’s attacks on immigrants and to demand a clean Dream Act. The time is now, and November 9th will be the day in which America tells Congress: we demand a clean Dream Act by December! Everyday that goes by more and more immigrant youth lose their work permits and protections from deportation. Only by coming together, can we protect them from Trump’s racist attack! Take part in Operation Dream Act Now, the largest operation ever done to pass a clean Dream Act by December. WHAT IS A **CLEAN** DREAM ACT? We need a permanent solution for our undocumented young people, but we will also not allow anti-immigrant extremists and their accomplices to use undocumented young people as bargaining chips for draconian measures to fulfill the Trump administration’s white supremacy wish list. A clean DREAM Act means Congress must swiftly pass this widely popular bipartisan bill without any additions or amendments that will put our families and the rest of our immigrant community at greater risk for undue detention and deportation. That’s why we’re fighting for a clean DREAM Act.

New Court Update #DACA

February 13, 2018

As you know, President Barack Obama started DACA (Thanks for the activist that made it happen) and we all got work permits. Since his presidential campaign Trump promised to end the DACA program, and he send the U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end it on live TV. All because the Attorney General in Texas created an imaginary March 5th deadline and threaten to sue Trump if he didn't cancel DACA. Since Trump didnt want to get sued by Texas and other Red States, he cancelled the DACA program and then... Several DACA recipeints and attorneys sued Trump for ending the program. There is 3 lawsuits involving #DACA. The 1st judge in San Francisco, California order the program to come back to live before AG Jeff Sessions cancelled it, this meant people who could re-apply could do it, unfortunately there is No New Applications and No AP (Advance Parole) Now Tuesday Feb 13th 2018, a new judge in Brooklyn, New York has also declared that the way Trump ended DACA was unlawful and the program should be back on and again No New Applications and No AP (Advance Parole) The Supreme Court could also decide to review the case, but they have until late April or June to figure that out, in the mean time this is great news!! Q; Where does this leave the current negotiations in Congress for a permanent solution? A; The negotiations are still on, we must put pressure in both houses and make sure it is a proposal that wont treat our parents as criminals.
