The #POWERTOACT Challenge
DO NOT WITHHOLD GOOD FROM THOSE TO WHOM IT IS DUE,
WHEN IT IS IN YOUR POWER TO ACT. (PROVERBS 3:27 NIV)
Polls show that the overwhelming majority of evangelical Christians—along with most Americans overall, including majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—want Congress to permanently resolve the situations of “Dreamers,” young immigrants brought as children to the U.S.
While the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June 2020 in such a way that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) remains in place for the moment, the court also made clear that the program could still be terminated, underscoring the need for a permanent legislative solution from Congress.
Congress has the power to act, but Senators and Representatives are much more likely to do so if they are convinced that their constituents see a solution for Dreamers as a priority.
Ask your member of Congress today:
Please stand up for Dreamers, passing legislation that would allow immigrants brought to the U.S. as children the opportunity to apply for U.S. citizenship.
It is in your power to act by making a simple phone call to a Member of Congress whose job is to represent you. Your power to act is even greater when you then challenge others to make the same call.
When you use this form, we’ll determine a your U.S. Representative based on your home address, and you’ll immediately receive a phone call connecting you to his or her office. Simply leave a message (whether with the receptionist or on a voicemail system), sharing your name, your address (so they know you’re really a constituent), and the message that you want to encourage the Member of Congress to use their power to act on behalf of Dreamers with a legislative solution that would allow Dreamers to stay in the U.S. permanently. Then stay on the line, and we’ll connect you to both of your U.S. Senators’ offices as well.
