We must demand our members of congress pledge to vote #NoDreamNoDeal.
Last month, 7 courageous Dreamers and 1 ally were arrested for peacefully sitting in at congressional offices in DC. They risked everything by determinedly holding a jail strike, risking not only continued detention but also deportation. Nationwide, people rose up in solidarity hosting vigils and rallies nationwide.
Thanks to efforts like this and the events held in solidarity nationwide, we were able to radically influence key Senate votes. Just a month before, in November, we only had four Senators committed to vote no on any spending bill that didn't include a clean Dream Act. On the December 21st vote, 30 Democrats voted against it. We are closer than ever before, Democrats still hold the power to shut down the government if a clean DREAM act is left out of the spending bill, but the rest is up to us.
We NEED 11 more Senators to take a stand to bring a clean Dream Act closer to being a reality, but we cannot do this without your voice and you taking action. We expect a vote by Friday, Jan. 19th, and we are calling organizations and individuals across the country to join us by organizing a local action. This isn’t a choice for Dreamers: we either pressure Democrats to include DACA in the spending bill or we lose our status by March.
We can win this, we’ve done it before! But only if undocumented youth & allies across the country rise to the challenge and, once again, use the power of nonviolent direct action, which won DACA in the first place. We are going to the offices of as many Representatives and Senators as possible to demand they make a choice: stand tall with Dreamers or be part of the deportation machine that will target 800,000 young immigrants.
Whoever and wherever you are, you can play a crucial role. We will support you every step of the way. Will you join us?
