The House-passed Dream and Promise Act would provide a roadmap to citizensip for over 3 million Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders, many of whom are essential workers keeping America running during the pandemic. Now, it's time for the Senate to act quickly to make this bill law.
Here are a few ways you can TAKE ACTION to protect families.
