San Francisco: Demand that Rep. Pelosi Commit to a Clean DREAM Act
Join the ACLU of Northern California and our partners as we deliver more than 200,000 petition signatures to Minory Leader Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco office demanding that she does everything in her power to pass a clean DREAM Act in Congress.
When Pres. Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, he put more than 800,000 people at risk of deportation. His cruel, racist, and xenophobic regime is now holding DACA ransom for increased immigration enforcement and funding for Trump's border wall.
We need to make sure that Democratic leaders hold the line.
Can you join us on Monday, Oct. 16 to demand that Leader Pelosi stands with immigrants, supports a clean DREAM Act, and blocks any federal legislation that trades DACA for policies that would put other immigrants in danger?
11:45 a.m. — Rally in front of the Federal Building.
11:55 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. — Facebook Live.
12:20 to 12:45 p.m. — We will walk into the building together to deliver the petition signatures.
NOTE: You will need your driver's license, state I.D., or passport to enter the Federal Building.
California has led the resistance to Trump’s xenophobic regime since day one. State leaders have launched court challenges to Trump’s racist Muslim ban and executive action to end DACA. And recently, Gov. Brown enacted the strongest statewide policy in the country that protects immigrants from deportation.
We need to show Leader Pelosi that Californians – whether they were born in the United States or another country – are counting on her to step up now.
Trump wants to reinstate DACA in exchange for adding 10,000 new agents to Trump’s deportation force, funding for a southern border wall, and the closing of our borders to asylum seekers. Now more than ever, Leader Pelosi and all Democrats must stand strong and refuse to advance any compromise bill that would restore DACA on the backs of other immigrants.
Join us for a rally and petition drop at Leader Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco office on Monday, Oct. 16.
This event is co-hosted by CREDO, the ACLU of Northern California, Courage Campaign, Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, and Movimiento Cosecha.
