Since 2012, more than 750,000 immigrants who were brought to the US as children have been able to live without fear of deportation thanks to a policy called Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Because of DACA, thousands have been allowed to pursue higher education and better jobs, and have been able to thrive and give back to their communities.
The current administration has talked about ending DACA, which would strip away these protections and put thousands at risk. Since DACA recipients are registered with the government, many are also worried that this information could be used against them.
Today we’re using our collective power to urge General John Kelly, the Secretary of Homeland Security, to commit to protecting DACA, along with the private information of DACA recipients.
The petition we’ve chosen is from Reform Immigration for America, who are at the forefront of the push to bring about workable, humane, and comprehensive immigration reform.
