The administration’s decision to bring an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in September 2017 put over 800,000 immigrant youth at risk of deportation. The administration has also terminated Temporary Protected Status—a humanitarian form of immigration status for those who cannot safely return to their home country due to extraordinary circumstances, like armed conflict and environmental disaster—for 98 percent of all holders. Congress must act immediately to protect DREAMers and TPS holders from deportation and provide a permanent, legislative fix that provides a pathway to citizenship.
President Trump has responded to our country's immigration problems by announcing plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a deeply misguided means of addressing the very real challenges facing our immigration system. Urge your Members of Congress to support immigration reform that reflects our values as Americans and as Reform Jews.
