What to Say

Here are some talking points you should go over:
  • DACA recipients have gone under extensive background checks and have paid fees for their right to live in the United States. These are bright young people who want to contribute to this country, not threats to our safety. Nearly 90% of Americans support protections for DREAMers, and we should be upholding those.
  • Threatening to deport DACA recipients won’t just hurt them — it will hurt their families. DREAMers have to share their relative’s personal information as well as their own to receive their protections. Ending DACA could pose a threat of deportation to siblings and parents as well.
  • Call your Senators and tell them to support legislation like the bipartisan “DREAM Act” (S. 1615) to create a legislative fix.
  • Call your Congressperson and tell him/her to support legislation like the "American Hope Act" (H.R. 3591) to give those who arrived in the U.S. as children a path to legal status and citizenship.

Some Tips

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself, ask for the name of the person who handles immigration policy, and share where you're from so your senator’s staff know that you're a constituent. (“Hi, this is Corina calling from Phoenix, Arizona. Can I speak to the person in your office who handles immigration?”)

Say why you’re calling & what you want to happen

State the reason you are calling and the specific action you want your senator to take — DACA recipients deserve to live safely in America and continue contributing to our nation.

Share

After your call, share how the call went on Facebook and Twitter and encourage your friends to reach out to their senator.
