Immigration Campaign Action Alert 1-16-18

Call Your Legislators To Say
“WE NEED THE DREAM ACT NOW!”

This week may be our last chance to pass the DREAM Act in Congress. Our immigrant siblings need a path to citizenship, not just the band-aid measures and scraps of legislation Congress is trying to pass. Our IL delegation needs to stand strong and be champions of the DREAM Act in the House and Senate. Your call matters now more than ever.

Make sure to check out all of the opportunities available for you to take action for immigration justice with JCUA below.

Call Your Members of Congress

Call your legislators today and tell them we will not allow any budget measure or continuing resolution to pass without a DREAM Act in 2018.
Sen. Dick Durbin – Washington Office: (202) 224-2152
Sen. Tammy Duckworth – Washington Office:  (202) 224-2854

IMPORTANT:

If you live in either the 10th District or the 6th district we are also focusing on your State Reps!
10th District – State Rep. Brad Schneider (202) 225-4835
6th District – State Rep. Peter Roskam (202) 225-4561
