MADISON - It’s time for our leaders in Congress to do the right thing and pass the Dream Act.

When President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program last year he created a crisis that will only worsen after March 5th when DACA expires. It’s time for Congress to resolve this crisis by passing the Dream Act to ensure that 800,000 young immigrants who were brought to the United States as children are protected.

The Dream Act has broad bipartisan support and sponsorship. 87% of Americans are in favor of passage of the Dream Act.

As a country largely of immigrants, we are made stronger by our diversity. This is a moment of that truth for our country. We can and we must do better in speaking out against racism. Dreamers are Americans and they belong in America. Congress must step up and take immediate action to protect them.

It's time for our leaders in Congress to uphold the values and ideals that our country holds dear. They must stand for young Americans who are working hard, paying taxes and contributing to our society on their path to citizenship.

Stand with the League of Women Voters and urge your U.S. Senators and Representative to pass a clean DREAM Act now!
