Congress Fails Immigrant Communities as DACA Deadline Passes, Padres & Jóvenes Unidos Demands Action
Monday, March 5th has come and gone. The deadline for Congress to take action on Trump’s decision to rescind the DACA program has passed with no action! Our Congressional leaders have failed us. We must resist the excessive partisan politics in Washington that is hampering progress for our communities!
Since President Trump’s heinous decision to end DACA, hundreds of thousands of individuals, their families, and their allies have repeatedly demanded a solution. Even with the daily threat of deportation and status expirations, we continued to push our leaders to stand up for our communities. They still have not.
Weeks ago, the Supreme Court ruled that challenges to the President’s decision to end the program must go through traditional legal channels. The case now goes back to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in California, and Congress used this delay to continue to drag their feet on a permanent solution. It is time for the President and Congress to do their jobs.
A Congress that will not act will not continue to work for us, and we expect our leaders to do just that: LEAD! Left without a permanent solution, we must continue to put pressure on all our elected officials, and we need you in this fight! We will not allow delays to divide us. In November our voices will be heard and our votes will be counted. Register to vote today!
