Since President Trump decided to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, it's been left up to our members of Congress to take action to protect nearly 800,000 DACA recipients across the country. So far, they've done nothing, and every day they fail to act, 122 Dreamers lose their protections from deportation. The bipartisan Dream Act introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) would provide a path to citizenship for the 1.8 million immigrant youth who grew up calling this country home, but so far, majority leaders in the House and Senate have refused to bring this bill up for a vote. Now that Congress has once again passed a budget deal with no solution for Dreamers, it's up to us to hold them accountable and demand they stop breaking their promises.
