It’s simple: We keep our promises.

When you make a promise to someone, you keep it. It’s that simple. Our country promised Dreamers that we would not take away their bright futures from them.

But Donald Trump has gone back on our promise and is threatening to kick out these young immigrants who know no other home but the United States. It’s heartless and cruel, and I’m fighting to ensure these young people can stay in the country they love.

Add your name now: Tell Congress to protect Dreamers!

If Trump kicks out these 800,000 young people, it will not only tear their families and our communities apart, but it will damage our local economies. Dreamers are business owners, students, activists, and entrepreneurs. Our country has invested in these young people; why would we make them leave now?

Dreamers are American in their heart and soul, just not in their paperwork. It’s absolutely wrong for Trump to rip them from their families and deport them to countries they may have never known.

We must act now, as Congress has a short window of time to protect Dreamers. Sign the petition: Tell Congress to protect Dreamers from deportation!
