The WG-USA Education Committee is urging all members to take action by contacting their U.S. Senators and Representative. At this moment, the “Dreamers” – children brought to the U.S. without legal status – future hangs in the balance. Will they be forced to return to a country they know little about, or be able to stay in the U.S. where they have grown up.
This is the statement from the WG-USA Education Committee:
WG-USA strongly opposes the decision to end DACA and stands with the Dreamers.
We believe it is foolish and wasteful to deny access to the intelligence and contributions of the young people of DACA. Further, we believe a permanent solution is needed to protect DACA recipients from deportation and allow them to continue access to education and work.
WG-USA vigorously reaffirms its support of DACA that provides for the protection of 750,000 migrants from deportation and offers steps to citizenship.
Action Needed – Tell Congress we must protect Dreamers and pass a clean Dream Act today.
