Stand in Support of DREAMers
Most DACA Youth were brought to the U.S. as babies or children by their parents.
Consequently, they did not choose to come and live in the United States themselves. Furthermore, as most DACA Youth came to live in the United States as young children, our country is all that they know.
These youth came forward out of the shadows to cooperate with our government and get right with the law, to the extent that they could. They paid a fee to apply for DACA, they submitted to a rigorous application process and investigation, they gave their personal and family information to the government, and they agreed to pay taxes on any wages they received through use of the work authorization. For the government to rescind DACA and then to use applicants' information to begin deporting these youth and their family would be inhumane, inequitable, and would undermine the ideas of fairness and compassion that our nation holds dear.
"The International Convention on the Rights of the Child provides a universal legal basis for the protection of underage migrants. They must be spared any form of detention related to migratory status, and must be guaranteed regular access to primary and secondary education. Equally, when they come of age they must be guaranteed the right to remain and to enjoy the possibility of continuing their studies. Temporary custody or foster programs should be provided for unaccompanied minors and minors separated from their families. The universal right to a nationality should be recognized and duly certified for all children at birth." Pope Francis, Message for the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2018.
