Call Senator Bennet and Senator Gardner and Congressman Polis now to protest Trump’s DACA repeal and to thank Senators Bennet and Gardner for co-sponsoring bipartisan Dream Act of 2017.
We stand on the right side of history when we defend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Senator Michael Bennet calls the announcement by the White House to kill the DACA program a “devastating betrayal for the hundreds of thousands of individuals who have used the security of DACA status to receive an education, pursue careers, and safely put down roots in their communities.” Stand with all of them, all of these people who are our friends and neighbors and classmates, by calling on your members of Congress to pass DACA into law. Your phone call can help save 800,000 Dreamers from job loss or even deportation.
SCRIPT: “I am calling to thank Senators Gardner and Bennett for protecting DREAMers by co-sponsoring the bipartisan Dream Act of 2017. The people targeted by the repeal of DACA are my neighbors, my friends, my children’s classmates. We all deserve better.” OR “I am calling to urge Representative Polis to protect DREAMers by supporting the bipartisan Dream Act of 2017. The people targeted by the repeal of DACA are my neighbors, my friends, my children’s classmates. We all deserve better.”

Background: Rescinding DACA is a cruel, infuriating setback but the fight isn’t over. The Dream Act of 2017 is bipartisan legislation that would allow around 1.5 million U.S.-raised immigrant youth to earn lawful permanent residence and American citizenship if they:
- Are longtime residents who came to the U.S. as children;
- Graduate from high school or obtain a GED;
- Pursue higher education, work lawfully for at least three years, or serve in the military;
- Pass security and law enforcement background checks and pay a reasonable application fee;
- Demonstrate proficiency in the English language and a knowledge of United States history; and
- Have not committed a felony or other serious crimes and do not pose a threat to our country.
