Devastating and cruel.

America was built on dreams.

There are some 800,000 young people who were brought here as children and want to help build America, but their dreams are about to be dashed.

We must defend the Dream Act – sign my petition.

For many of these youths, America is the only country they've ever known. Thanks to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, they are able to go to school and work legally.

Unfortunately, when Donald Trump ended DACA, he put these youth's future in jeopardy. They now face isolation and deportation, as their home turns its back on them.

It's devastating and cruel.

Sign my petition calling on Congress to pass the Dream Act so they can stay in Americato go to school, work, serve in the Armed Forces, start businesses, buy homes and pursue the American dream.

These youths deserve to stay. This is where they grew up – they are Americans through and through.

They are why we must pass the Dream Act before the end of the year.

Sign the petition: tell Republicans in Congress to pass the Dream Act NOW.
