Show up for DACA on November 12 

November 5, 2019

On November 12, 2019 the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the legality of the administration’s decision to terminate DACA.

If the Supreme Court supports the administration’s decision to end DACA, hundreds of thousands of people who are Americans in every way but their status would lose the right to work and live without fear, and ultimately be vulnerable to deportation. We cannot let this happen. We must use our voices to protect our community.

DACA youth came to the US before their 16th birthday, many as babies,  and  have grown up in our country, some even choosing to put their lives on the line to serve in our armed forces. This is the country they know as home. These young, educated, tax-paying individuals are a valuable part of our work force and our communities

People of faith are called to act. We need to show up for everyone -- for our friends, for our congregants, for our undocumented family members, for those with temporary protected status (TPS) or deferred enforced departure (DED) recipients who live every day in limbo. As we fight for DACA and lift up the stories of our DACA recipient community members, we stand with all, no matter their status. Faith communities on the East coast have been marching from New York to Washington, DC. to stand in solidarity on the steps of the Supreme Court during the hearing on Tuesday.

Please join the Immigration Ministry Team as we stand with others to offer our support:

Tuesday, November 12 from 2-4pm at the US District Court (Western District of Washington), 700 Stewart St., Seattle.
