After 11 Attorneys General, led by Texas AG Ken Paxton, decided to sue the U.S. Government in an attempt to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that has provided relief from deportation for more than 800,000 young people, many are concerned that President Trump may end DACA by September 5th. Without DACA, Dreamers will be under the threat of deportation.
It is extremely urgent and important to rally support in the faith community now for DACA. On this IIC Webinar, will we host a guest speaker from United We Dream, Greisa Martinez, who will share the most effective strategy to defend DACA.
We will also have updates on the DREAM act and the appropriations process and remind people how to take action this August recess to stop funding for more deportations and detention centers and support refugees in this times of crisis.
