SUPPORT ALL IMMIGRANTS
Though recent headlines have focused on changes to the DACA program, the safety and well-being of all immigrants remains a priority. We need to refuse our support for any proposed legislation that would exchange one life for another. We will not accept any bill that conditions the implementation of the DREAM Act or other immigrant benefit on the funding of broader deportation or enforcement mechanisms. Likewise, we will adamantly oppose any action that does away with Temporary Protected Status or other benefits for vulnerable immigrant populations. #SaveTPS #NoBanNoWallNoRaids
Please share widely.
