Reinstate TPS for Salvadorans. On Jan. 8th, the Trump administration decided not to renew Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for the 200,000 Salvadorans who have received this benefit for the past 17 years. This decision goes against our call as Christians to protect and defend the most vulnerable. Call upon Congress to urge the administration and the Department of Homeland Security to reconsider their decision to terminate El Salvador's TPS and to pass permanent legislative protection for all TPS recipients.

Support the Dream Act You may have written before, but Congress must keep hearing from us until they pass a clean Dream Act with a pathway to citizenship, and without additional funding for border enforcement, detention centers or deportations. The Dream Act of 2017 has bipartisan support in both the Senate and House of Representatives, but they still need to hear from us. Send an email message or better yet, call your representative and senators at 1-866-940-2430 and urge them to pass a clean Dream Act.
