Call our members of Congress today and tell them they must pass a clean version of the bipartisan “DREAM Act” this week. Our communities are stronger with the talents of Nebraska Dreamers.

On Sept. 5, the White House announced it would wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which let thousands of hardworking and talented young Nebraskans called “Dreamers” contribute to Nebraska communities as teachers, entrepreneurs, and health professionals, and other important careers.
DACA helped them support families and live securely in the communities they call home.
Now, hundreds of Dreamers are seeing their DACA protections expire each day. And that number will skyrocket after the end of DACA, slated for March 5.
There is a short window of opportunity for us to pass a permanent solution, the bipartisan DREAM Act of 2017, that would allow Dreamers to keep learning, working, and contributing to their home state, and eventually, earn U.S. citizenship.
