Loyola University of New Orleans: Jesuit Social Research Institute – CALL CONGRESS TO PASS A “CLEAN” DREAM ACT

Dear Friends–

We need to keep the pressure on our members of Congress to pass a “clean” DREAM Act that truly protects our young immigrant sisters and brothers and does not use Dreamers as a “bargaining chip” to destroy family-based reunification of immigrant families or other harsh anti-immigrant measures the Trump administration desires.

Please call your members of Congress (2 Senators and 1 Representative) at the following number: 202-224-3121 to support a clean Dream Act. Below is a suggested text for your call. To call all three of your Congresspersons will take only 4 minutes and 35 seconds of your time! Please keep the pressure on Congress to do the right thing!

Hello! My name is ______ and my zip code is ______. I am calling as a constituent and person of faith to urge Senator/Representative ______ to support a clean DREAM Act that will allow undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to gain a path to citizenship. I urge Senator/Representative______ to not use Dreamers and the DREAM Act as a “bargaining chip” to destroy our family-reunification based immigration visa system. Thank you!

P.S. Please be ready to make more such calls in the coming days. The hope is that a clean DREAM Act will be included in a budget resolution that Congress must agree to by January 19 to keep the goverment running.
