Immigration Advocacy Opportunity
The Supreme Court is currently considering the case for Dreamers (those currently protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program). Concurrently, the House has already passed H.R. 6 which would provide critical permanent legal protection to DACA recipients, and the Senate is considering its partner bill, S. 874, the Dream Act of 2019 (both of which are supported by the US bishops conference).
We encourage you to take action, encouraging our Senators to support this legislation. To do so, please click here. We also encourage you to reach out directly to our Senators and ask them to support the bill. You can reach Senator Portman's office at 513.684.3265 and Senator Brown's office at 513.684.1021.
