Hundreds to Sit-In Across the Country for the DREAM Act, #NoDreamNoDeal!

Dreamers and Allies Plan Sit-ins in 45 Local Senate and House Offices Demanding that Members Pledge to Vote Against Year-End spending bill unless it includes a clean Dream Act

Dec. 4, 2017

WASHINGTON -- On Monday December 4, Dreamers and allies will stage sit-ins in at least 45 congressional offices demanding that all Democrats and Republicans who claim to support Dreamers pledge to vote against any omnibus spending bill unless it includes a clean Dream Act.

Donald Trump overturned Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program that offers protected status to undocumented youth who came to the United States as children. If a clean Dream Act is not passed in the omnibus spending bill before the end of the year, 800,000 undocumented young people will remain at risk of losing their protected status and being deported. Funding for the federal government will run out on December 8th. Republicans cannot pass a new spending bill without Democratic votes. Over 30 Democrats–including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Dick Durbin, and Keith Ellison–and one Republican, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, have pledged to vote against any spending bill that does not include a clean Dream Act.

Monday’s actions are part of a larger movement to fight for a clean Dream Act, where immigrants brought to the United States as children are able to live, learn, work, and pursue their dreams in the only country they’ve ever known as home.
