What you can do for DACA
The Trump administration has announced that they would end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a policy that protected undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children from deportation.
Like the refugees from Syria in the film, DACA immigrants face unimaginable horrors in their home countries. El Salvador, the country with the second most DACA recipients, is the second most deadly country in the world -- Syria is the first. The threat from gang and state-sponsored violence in Central American countries (including Honduras, the country with the third most DACA immigrants) has forced thousands to flee in search of safety, much like how armed conflict has displaced those in Syria. Those who come to the U.S. in search of safety deserve a place to stay.
Now, after public outrage, Trump is apparently in talks with the Democratic leadership to protect the DACA Dreamers. We need to double-down on that and continue to pressure Trump and Congress to carry out protections for young undocumented immigrants.
Tell President Trump why DACA is important to you. We will compile and share on social media and amplify your voice across the web and world.
