We are sharing the below request from Move On:
After months of deliberation, a federal court just released its decision on the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, ruling against DACA recipients.1 While renewals remain open for now, the lives of hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients remain in a legal state of limbo.
Immigrant families deserve to live without the constant fear of deportation. Demand that President Biden and Congress take action to provide permanent protection, such as citizenship, before it’s too late.
DACA is an administrative relief program that temporarily protects eligible immigrant youth from deportation and grants them work permits. DACA is right and legal and has helped hundreds of thousands of young people finish school, apply for work permits, and be protected from detention and deportation. The GOP has attacked DACA since its inception, and this conservative court decision affirms just how relentless Republicans are. Will you support immigrant youth by demanding their permanent protection?
DACA was won through the organizing of thousands of young people of color, who have remained resilient despite incessant anti-immigrant attacks. This fight is far from over, and we need to step up to have their backs against anti-immigrant, Republican-appointed judges by demanding permanent protection for all Dreamers and immigrant youth.
Thanks for all you do!
