ACLU of Georgia Says Young People Have Earned a Clean Extension of the Dream Act

NOVEMBER 3, 2017

Atlanta – Yesterday President Trump met with a small dreamer-daca group of Senate Republicans to discuss a potential legislative fix for the 800,000 young people who are living in limbo since the politicians canceled the Dream Act almost two months ago. These politicians ruled out fixing the problem that they themselves had created unnecessarily.

“The uncertainty created by President Trump threatens young people who have thrived in our schools, obeyed our laws, paid taxes, and served our communities as volunteers, teachers, and in uniform,” stated Andrea Young, Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “These young adults are working diligently to earn American citizenship and deserve better. They have earned a clean Extension of the Dream Act.”
