Take Action: Protect DACA Beneficiaries

On Nov. 12, 2019 the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on three consolidated Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cases challenging the programs existence. The Court’s decision could pull the rug out from under 700,000 DACA beneficiaries, putting them at risk of deportation in the midst of a global pandemic. DACA recipients are teachers, school support staff, students, nurses, college faculty, small business owners, bus drivers and grocery workers. Over 200,000 are frontline, essential workers who are showing up for us every day, risking their own health. They are part of the fabric of our communities and our union. The AFT was one of the organizations in partnership with the NAACP that brought the lawsuit against the Trump administration’s termination of DACA, which allowed DACA members to keep their protection for an additional two years.

Join the AFT and the Home Is Here coalition and prepare for the Supreme Court Decision on DACA.
