Support the DREAM Act of 2017 & Oppose the RAISE Act

18 Signatures Goal: 1,000

I urge Congress to pass the bipartisan DREAM Act of 2017 to protect undocumented youth who were brought to this country as children. We also urge the Trump administration to preserve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program until a legislative solution can be achieved. These young people, who were raised in America, know no other home. They deserve the opportunity to continue their education, work and raise their families without fear of deportation.

I urge Congress to reject the RAISE Act, which would divide families and weaken America’s ability to respond to those in crisis. This discriminatory bill is in opposition to the values that we hold as Americans.

    I am writing in opposition to the RAISE Act. Passing the act, and thereby removing the DREAM act, puts all of these young people's futures at risk. That would be reprehensible, especially after the trust they've shown in America by coming forward to begin with.

    Please, do the right thing and oppose the RAISE Act, and any other legislation that seeks to target DACA participants.

    We cannot call ourselves a "civilized nation" (or even human beings) if we send these CHILDREN to their countries of origin, where they will be exploited, & more than likely die.
