Time is running out. Every day that Congress fails to pass the DREAM Act – a path to lawful immigration status for DREAMers – 122 people lose their DACA protections (“It’s not too late for Congress to pass a DREAM act,” Jan. 10).
Although the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has begun accepting DACA renewals again, as ordered by a federal court in California, we do not know how long this reprieve for DREAMers will last. President Donald Trump’s Justice Department is fighting hard and asking the Supreme Court for immediate review of the order.
We cannot rely on him for a “bill of love.” Instead, we must pick up the phone, head to town hall meetings and flood the streets to demand that Congress take immediate action and finally pass a clean version of the DREAM Act.
