Monday, February 26 -- USCCB National Call-In Day to Protect Dreamers

The Senate failed to achieve the 60 votes needed to move forward with debate on legislation to provide relief to Dreamers. The U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops is asking the faithful across the U.S. to call their Members of Congress on Monday, February 26 to protect Dreamers from deportation, to provide them a path to citizenship, and to avoid any damage to existing protections for families and unaccompanied minors in the process. "We are deeply disappointed that the Senate was not able to come together in a bipartisan manner to secure legislative protection for the Dreamers.With the March 5th deadline looming, we ask that Members of Congress show leadership to find a just and humane solution for these young people who are facing mounting anxiety and uncertainty." You can reach U.S. Representatives via the link above or at 202-225-3121.
