FEDERAL:

Immigration/DACA:

Trump took time out from his Easter festivities to announce that he was closing the window on any sort of DACA deal. We all know the complexities of this issue. Deporting a single DACA recipient will break up households where other family members have citizenship. It would also be sending people back to countries they never really knew, and in some cases, DACA recipients have no meaningful ties to people living in their native country. It would also be economically devastating, taking thousands of taxpaying workers out of the economy. We need a legitimate DACA fix that will provide DACA-eligible residents with a path to citizenship.

Script:
Hello, I am a constituent calling from _______________ to urge Sen./Rep. ___________ to oppose any immigration legislation that would end family-based migration and the diversity lottery. Please support legislation that would provide DACA recipients with a path to citizenship. Trump’s comments over the Easter holiday were against the foundational spirit of our country, which is to welcome immigrants. Don’t waste billions of taxpayer dollars building a wall. Thank you for taking my call.
