Tell Senator Hatch To Stand With Dreamers

To be delivered to Sen. Orrin Hatch (UT-1)

Petition Statement

Senator Hatch must take stand in support of young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers by defending DACA and co-sponsoring the 2017 Dream Act.
There are currently 1,965 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

This summer, the Trump Administration will decide whether to deport nearly 800,000 young immigrants who came to the United States as children and currently have no immigration status, a group often known as Dreamers.

In 2012, President Obama used his executive power to protect Dreamers from deportation and allowed them to work and drive legally in the United States.

Since then Dreamers have thrived under DACA, by going to school and contributing back to their local communities and economy.

However, several officials within the Trump Administration have indicated that they intend on ending the DACA program - killing the dreams of hundreds of thousands of Dreamers who grew up only know America as their home and putting them on a path to deportation.

Even Trump’s top immigration official even told Hispanic leaders in Congress to prepare for the worst in regards to the DACA program.

The 2017 Dream Act, a bipartisan bill recently introduced in Congress, would allow Dreamers to stay in the United States and apply for citizenship. If we want to ensure that Dreamers are kept safe from Donald Trump’s Deportation Force, then Senator Orrin Hatch must recognize them as the aspiring Americans that they are and pledge to protect DACA program and co-sponsoring the 2017 Dream Act.
