Washington, DC -- On June 23rd, the US Supreme Court issued a 4-4 tie decision on President Obama’s executive action programs designed to provide relief from deportation to close to 5 million members of the undocumented community - Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+). The decision maintains the block against DAPA and DACA+, preventing them from being implemented.  

Yesterday the Department of Justice filed a petition with the Supreme Court for rehearing in United States v. Texas.

Take action to stand up for immigrant women and families

Call (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected with your senator. Use the sample script below for your call:

My name is [add your name] and I live in [city, state]. As one of the Senator’s constituents, I urge the Senator to stand up for immigrant women and families and vote NO on Senate bill 3100 and Senate bill 2193. These bills will undermine the safety of millions of families and communities and are bad policies for our country. Thank you.

Supreme Court’s Split Decision Erroneously Maintains the Block on President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration

Washington, DC -- We Belong Together is greatly disappointed in the Supreme Court’s split decision on President Obama’s executive action programs designed to provide relief from deportation to close to 5 million members of the undocumented community - Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+). This decision not only creates legal confusion but forces immigrant communities to continue living in fear of their families being ripped apart.

Orange Is the New Black Star: Immigration Raids Are Ripping Apart America

Guerrero is an actor, the author of In The Country We Love, and a supporter of the We Belong Together campaign

In recent weeks, I have been speaking publicly about my life as a U.S. citizen who used to live with the constant fear that my family would be deported. I was 14-years-old when those fears were realized. Growing up without my parents by my side is a weight I still carry today.

Take action to stop the raids on refugee families!

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is planning another series of raids specifically targeting Central American mothers and children who have come to the United States seeking safety from life-threatening violence.

Call the White House at 202-456-1111 and urge President Obama to stop the raids immediately.

When you connect with the operator tell them you demand that President Obama stop the planned raids on Central American women and children immediately.
