Over the past five years, DACA has provided 800,000 immigrant youth protection from deportation, the opportunity for higher education and jobs, and more stability to our communities. Similarly, TPS has aided over 300,000 immigrants from Africa, Haiti, Central America, Syria, Yemen and other countries that have suffered from major catastrophes.
September 5th is the deadline that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and 9 other right-wing politicians have given Trump to end the DACA program.
That's why beginning on September 1 and continuing to the September 5 national day of action, in cities and states across the country, thousands of immigrant youth and allies will take to the streets to demand that the Trump administration and members of Congress protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs.
DACA recipients, immigrants protected under TPS and our allies have a message to the Trump administration: We have won before, we will win again, and we are #HereToStay.
