This Key Vote Alert! letter was sent to the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, supporting H.R. 6, the "American Dream and Promise Act," and H.R. 1603, the "Farm Workforce Modernization Act."
“The Supreme Court made the right decision today for Dreamers, our economy, and our country. Removing 700,000 Dreamers protected under DACA from our economy would deny our country talent, future leaders, and an essential piece of the American workforce including teachers, nurses, doctors, farmers, and entrepreneurs."

Stripping DACA recipients of their ability to legally live and work in the country will harm them, their employers, their families, and their communities," said Bradley.
