Let's Get On the Phone Again and Pass the American Dream and Promise Act HR-6
The House has returned from recess, and they will soon vote on HR-6, the American Dream and Promise Act. This is the most expansive bill introduced to protect immigrants. It will provide status to 2 million immigrants under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) - all programs cruelly terminated by Trump. Almost every Democrat in Congress is co-sponsoring this historic legislation. This is the Act to provide a pathway to citizenship for our 600 Lowcountry Dreamers and 700,000 DACA's throughout our nation.
Please call Joe Cunningham's Beaufort office and urge him to sign on to this critical legislation. 843-521-2530
