Forty+ Celebrities, Cultural Influencers Send Letter to Democratic Leadership Urging Them to ‘Uphold Your Promise’ to Protect Dreamers
Calling on a “moral imperative” to pass the Dream Act, the signers include Hollywood actors, producers, writers, and other influencers from across the country, including Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Lawrence, Uzo Aduba, Kendrick Sampson, Don Cheadle, Sally Field, Aidy Bryant, Julianne Moore, Michael Pena, Shailene Woodley, Chris Evans, and others.
“We sincerely thank you for your leadership in standing up for these young people, many of whom are serving our country as active military personnel, firefighters, EMTs, and nurses, as well as students, entrepreneurs, and others,” the letter reads. “These young people are making our country stronger and better, and Congress must act now to resolve this issue before the end of the year.”
The letter continues: “We value your promise to hold all the members of your caucus to vote on a clean Dream Act without harmful amendments, like a costly border wall, border militarization such as an increase in Border Patrol agents, additional immigration detention funding or increases in ICE agents, or other measures that undermine the spirit of this bill.”
Support the clean Dream Act
Our message is clear: NOW is the time for members of Congress to show that they are listening and acting on their constituents’ demand for a clean Dream Act—or begin facing the consequences.
Hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth should never have been thrown into this kind of cruel chaos by Donald Trump, which he created when he ended the successful DACA program.
As Trump and the hardliner wing of the Republican Party continue to escalate their extreme demands on immigration, it’s going to be up to each of us to make sure that Congress does not go home for the holidays until Dreamers and immigrant youth are no longer living in fear of deportation.
