DACA Rally @ Rep. Smith’s Office
October 6, 2017 @ 12:00 pm
Together with Wind of the Spirit and Make the Road NJ’s immigrant youth committees, we are calling for action this Friday – the day after DACA begins to expire for nearly 800,000 immigrant youth- to support a clean DREAM Act that provides a path to citizenship for immigrant youth without any additional funding for Trump’s deportation machine.
The Sun Sets on DACA and We Rise Up is a coordinated series of actions at the offices of Members of Congress in NJ. To date, all NJ members of congress but 5 (our closest one not signed on is Smith) have signed on to support a clean Dream Act or to the discharge petition to push a floor vote on the Dream Act of 2017. As the DACA program ends, and tens of thousands of young people are pushed into the deportation pipeline each month, it is imperative that we raise our voices collectively to push Congress to act.
Join us for a peaceful rally to demonstrate our support for the DREAMers.
