Republicans Just Voted to Shut Down the Government

#TrumpShutdown

What does this mean?


Republicans have just voted to shut down the government after choosing to stand on the wrong side of history: the side of racism and blocking protections for millions of immigrant youth at risk of detention and deportation. Trump's shut down means that both parties must come to the negotiation table and figure out a pathway forward for youth across the country. Republicans created this crisis and now they must fix it. The next few days will be crucial.

Why The Dream Act is Urgent


Put simply, delay means deportations. Immigrant youth aren’t interested in scoring political points, we are literally fighting to save lives. Millions of us have no protections at all and 850 more of us lose protections every week. For us, the results of this debate means the difference between freedom and confinement, between life and death. We grew up in this country yet we are being psychologically tortured by these cruel men.

Who Caused This? How You Can Fight Back.


This shutdown is a result of Donald Trump killing the DACA program and Republicans in Congress standing with Trump's white-supremacist agenda and refusing to pass a spending bill with a Dream Act. A bill that nearly 85% of Americans support. We need your help to keep the pressure on them.

What's Next?


This shut down is due to Republicans’ inability to do the right thing, protect their constituents, and protect immigrant youth who have lived here for decades.

As always, immigrant youth will hold Congress accountable — whether in the streets or in the halls of our state and nation’s capitols.

For our parents and community, we want them to know that we will always have their backs. We are fighting an administration built on racism and harming people but we are a movement built on love and protecting one another.
