AILA Doc. No. 23032300 | Dated March 24, 2023
Immigrants have lived in the United States for years, investing in their communities and families, building businesses, and contributing billions to the economy. Overwhelmingly, Americans support a path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants and people with temporary status.
Take action now and tell Congress to ensure permanent status for these valued members of our community.
With the DACA program facing multiple legal challenges, it has never been more urgent for Congress to pass a permanent solution to protect and defend Dreamers and other people who are undocumented – many of whom are essential workers, first responders, friends, neighbors, and colleagues.
AILA supports the following bills and urges the 118th Congress to introduce and enact them into law.
On June 15, 2012, DHS announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which provided temporary protection from deportation (deferred action) for certain undocumented you. Since its creation, DACA has protected over 830,000 people who are valued members of our communities and contribute to the strength of the nation.
But, from day one, the DACA program itself was challenged in court and still hangs in the balance.

The President should defend and expand DACA and other legal pathways to protect Dreamers and other populations who still do not have permanent status.
