Virginia Organizing and partner organizations will hold a Prayer Vigil to Protect Dreamers on Saturday, November 9 at 1 pm at the Jackson Street United Methodist Church, 900 Jackson Street in Lynchburg.
We want our representatives in the U.S. Congress to know that we support the Dream Act and DACA recipients.
In 2012, President Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA allows young people who were brought to the United States without documentation to remain in the country, get a work permit, and live without fear of deportation. The Trump Administration wants to end the program, putting 700,000 young immigrants at risk. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case on November 12 to determine their fate.
