Urge your Senator to support the American Dream and Promise Act of 2021
Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 with bipartisan support. The bill would give DREAMers the opportunity to apply for conditional permanent residency status and TPS holders permanent residency status, given they meet the eligibility requirements. The Dream Act was first introduced in Congress in 2001, with both Republicans and Democrats championing this issue for the last 20 years. The time is now to finally pass the American Dream and Promise Act and bring stability to our DREAMers and TPS holders. 

In all sectors of employment, TPS and DACA recipients have been critical to keeping our economy afloat during the pandemic. Today, 29,000 DACA recipients are working as front-line health care workers, including doctors and nurses. DACA eligible workers contribute $1.4 billion in federal taxes, $2 billion in Social Security taxes and $470 million in Medicare each year. Additionally, 130,000 TPS holders are essential workers and TPS holders from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti contribute a combined $4.5 billion in pre-tax wages or salary income annually to our nation’s gross domestic product. Put more broadly, undocumented workers contribute $1 trillion to the country’s GDP and support almost $20 million jobs in the country. Immigrant labor, has been and will continue to be a critical to our nation’s future economic growth and its ability to stay competitive in the world stage. 

As the U.S. House of Representatives just passed the American Dream and Promise Act, we are urging the U.S. Senate to do the same. Please join us in taking action by asking your Senator to add their name as a co-sponsor and get the bill to the finish line.
