Together We Can Protect DACA and Immigrant Youth!
August 15th marks 5 years since 800,000 immigrant youth have been able to get legal protection, go to college, and support their families because of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).
But some right wing Republicans have threatened to take it away as early as September 5 so we HAVE to mobilize now. Are you ready?
Ending DACA and a program called Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for over 300,000 immigrants from Africa, Haiti, central America and other countries means the lives of over a million immigrants are in danger.
On August 15th, we need YOU to join thousands across the country to protect DACA and immigrant youth!
The clock is ticking – we must take to the streets and stand our ground! Let’s do this.
Take Action to Defend DACA
Today, thousands across the country are taking the streets to fight alongside immigrant youth to defend the DACA and TPS programs.
DACA, together with TPS, protects over 1,000,000 people who call this country their home. Ending DACA and TPS will mean that over 1,000,000 people could be deported because the government already has their personal information.
In 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program became the largest victory of the immigrant youth movement. It allowed thousands of us to protect ourselves from deportation, receive work permits, while providing more freedom to thousands of youth and their families across the country.
A handful of far-right Republican politicians are attempting to take DACA away if Trump doesn’t end the program by September 5th. The clock is ticking – are you ready to fight?
Call the elected officials below and tell them to defend DACA and TPS!

Why Mobilize Now?
Extremist Republicans have threatened to sue if Trump doesn’t kill DACA by September 5th. Over 1,000,000 people are covered under DACA and TPS. These programs enable people to work, go to school, provide for their families, be protected from deportation and gives many peace of mind. The clock is ticking and it’s time for us to take a stand!
How We Win
Most people don’t even know that the lives of over a million people are on the line. The majority of Americans agree with us – it’s time to activate them. If we tell the stories of immigrant youth and families and inspire MORE people to action, we can protect DACA and resist the Trump deportation force. On August 15th we call on all those who stand against racism and bigotry to show your willingness to protect DACA and immigrant youth!
Why DACA & TPS Matter
For immigrant youth, DACA means safety, it means being able to earn a paycheck to buy medicine for your mom, it means peace of mind, it means opportunity. In a sea of bad news, DACA is a shining light of good news and we have an opportunity to save it. In fact, immigrant youth and families won DACA by taking action and now we must take action to save it. Check this out: 95% are working or in school, 48% got a job with better working conditions, 90% got a driver’s license or state ID and 12% were even able to buy a first home. Hear it from them:
