TAKE ACTION NOW to Pass a Clean DREAM Act!

The impact of 800,000 young people losing DACA is cruel. Contact your Representative EVERYDAY to express your support for the bipartisan DREAM Act!  Passing the DREAM Act would protect eligible undocumented youth from deportation, allow them to work legally in the U.S., and create an eventual path to citizenship.

TO CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE:

Sample phone script if your Representative has not co-sponsored the DREAM Act
Hi, my name is _____ and I’m a constituent.  I am appalled by the White House’s decision to end DACA, and I am calling to ask Representative ___ to support a clean DREAM Act and to bring it up for a vote immediately.  The president’s decision to end DACA puts 800,000 lives and their families’ lives in limbo and negatively impacts the entire country.  DACA recipients are critical members of our communities – they are teachers, co-workers, friends, and neighbors.  And without DACA, they are vulnerable to deportation.  Again, I am a constituent, and I need Representative ___ to support and vote for the DREAM Act.  Thank you.

  • Virginia representatives who have not co-sponsored HR 3440 (as of September 14, 2017): Tom Garrett, Bob Goodlatte, Barbara Comstock, Dave Brat, Scott Taylor, Rob Wittman, Morgan Griffith
