Recap: ACTION FOR DREAMers: Tulsans Speak Out on DACA
More than 200 people from across our community came together at the start of the Advent season to stand in support of young immigrants who rely on the DACA program to work, continue their education, and raise families in Tulsa. ACTION member institutions collected comment cards from their congregations and supporters to share with our representatives in Congress, urging them to pass a fair and reasonable replacement program well before the Mar 5 expiration deadline. Current DACA recipients and their families shared stories of the lives they've built in Tulsa, and how they may be at risk if these protections for people brought to the US as children are removed.
