Standing with Dreamers and the Promise of America

John Gomperts, America's Promise Alliance

The removal of DACA announced on Tuesday threatens the futures of nearly 800,000 undocumented children and youth living in the United States.  How we support Dreamers has grave implications for the moral and economic life of our country. That’s why America’s Promise joins business, faith, and community leaders across the country in standing by all young people regardless of their immigration status.
 
As young people across the country are returning to school, we must continue to create a sense of safety and belonging. We must send the message that the nation is deeply invested in the health, well-being, and education of all young people, and that the Promise of America is open to all.
