Federal Legislative Action: DACA Legislation

Congress Stalemates and Dreamers Suffer
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Public support for protecting the Dreamers has been consistently high, 65% of US citizens oppose deporting them. Trump broke the Obama solution to this problem, and created a crisis. Congress appears to be unwilling to fix what Trump broke. It is unacceptable to hold the Dreamers hostage to Republican obstruction. 60% of Americans oppose the Trump border wall. Yet, the Trump administration and the Republicans continue to treat these two unacceptable issues as a tradeoff.  Democrats must loudly and consistently speak for the Dreamers. This issue cannot be allowed to fade away. These innocent young people matter.

Action:   Call Congress

Washington State Congress people:

Senator Patty Murray (253) 572-3636
Senator Maria Cantwell (253) 572-2281
Representative Denny Heck (360) 459-8514

Find you Congress people:

Script:

Hello, my name is ___________, and I am a member of Olympia Indivisible. I am calling to demand that (Senator Murray, Cantwell, Representative Heck) work tirelessly to free the Dreamers from the hostage taking actions of the Republicans. What is Senator/Representative going to do next to create a successful outcome for this awful, Republican-created stalemate? This issue simply cannot be forgotten, disenfranchising so many innocent young people and leaving immigrant communities with no hope.
