Catholic Bishops across the country are encouraging people to participate in a national “call-in day’ to Congress next Monday to express support for young immigrants know as “Dreamers”.
Kristie Arlt of the Catholic Diocese of Sioux City says the call-in represents an escalation of efforts to urge Congress to find a legislative solution for Dreamers before March 5th.
That’s the deadline President Trump set for ending the executive branch protection called “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” or “DACA.”
OC……….capitol switchboard. :17
The “Dreamers”, young people who were brought into the United States by their parents as children may face deportation as soon as March 6th unless Congress reaches a bi-partisan deal to protect them.
OC………….your senator. ;15
The toll free number to call is 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard.
Press two for your representative or 1 for your senator.
Once you are connected to each office, the Bishops want you to ask the person on the phone to deliver the message to support a bipartisan, common-sense, and humane solution for Dreamers.
