At the end of June 2017, two developments – most notably a letter from 10 Republican Attorneys General threatening to sue the President if he doesn’t end DACA by September 5th – made clear that Dreamers are under imminent threat, which would put the nearly 800,000 undocumented youth whom the program allows to work and live legally in the U.S. at immediate risk of being stripped of their work authorization and subject to deportation.
DACA is under immediate, existential threat. By early September, DACA could be gone, putting 800,000 Dreamers at risk of immediate deportation. We need the President to protect DACA and Dreamers – and we need every single Member of Congress and Senator to co-sponsor legislation that would allow Dreamers to work and live in the U.S. and demand a vote on the floor of the House and Senate.
