Call and Tell Katko: Keep Your Promise! Tell Congress to Pass CLEAN Dream Act by end of the Year!

Join the New York Immigration Coalition, the Workers’ Center of CNY, and all other people of conscience who are demanding that our elected officials include the Clean Dream Act in the spending budget before going home for the holidays this Friday, December 22nd. Just two weeks ago, on December 5th, Congressman John Katko (R) signed a letter with 33 other Republican legislators addressed to Senator Paul Ryan calling for a permanent legislative solution for DACA by the end of this year. In these last few days before the session ends, we want to drive calls to Katko to remind him to keep this critical promise to pass a CLEAN Dream Act before the holidays. The same way that legislators like Katko will surely look forward to being with their loved ones, it’s time they ensure that young undocumented immigrants can also be reassured that they will spend this holiday and many future holidays with their families.

Script:
“Hi, my name is XXX and I live in CITY/ZIP. I am calling to thank Congressman Katko for supporting signing Taylor letter to protect DACA recipients, and to make sure they know it is absolutely critical Republicans take the lead in ensuring Congress passes legislation to protect our immigrant brothers and sisters before the end of the year. Now that DACA has ended, we need a solution urgently, and we are counting on Republicans to show leadership in working across the aisle to reach a deal before going home for the holidays. Without legislation like a CLEAN Dream Act passed with NO concessions, dollars in the federal budget will be used to deport DACA recipients. Will MEMBER/SENATOR keep their promise to do everything they can to ensure a solution for Dreamers by the end of the year, and communicating this priority to Leadership?”
