Across the country, #DACA recipients celebrated their hard-fought victory at the Supreme Court and highlighted the need for Congress to act swiftly and pass the Dream and Promise Act. Our fight is far from over — #Dreamers need permanent protections. #HomeIsHere #HR6
Kenia, a Colorado #Dreamer, describes her reaction upon learning the news of the Supreme Court’s decision on #DACA: “I feel like I can breathe again, just a huge sigh of relief. I feel so grateful and blessed.” coloradoindependent.com/2020/06/18/dac… via @COindependent #HomeIsHere #HR6
“It’s an amazing decision but the fact is we need a permanent legislative solution for #DACA recipients & the rest of the undocumented population in this country & that’s on Congress.” @AceOutWide, #Dreamer & Communications Coordinator @DefineAmerican #HR6 msnbc.com/msnbc/watch/da…
"This is a big win for us. I know that undocumented people don't usually receive big wins like this. But even though we did win...we have to continue fighting for those people that don't have a voice or don't have #DACA." — Maylin, a Florida #Dreamer wusfnews.wusf.usf.edu/post/supreme-c… #HR6
“This decision has reaffirmed that, yes our #HomeIsHere, and it’s time for Congress to also enact that into law.” — @rdrigopimentel, Rhode Island #Dreamer via @Newsy #HR6 newsy.com/stories/suprem…
“Espero que el Congreso tome acción para que ya pasemos una ley que sea concreta.” — Andrea, TX #Dreamer via @Univision univision.com/noticias/inmig… #HomeIsHere #HR6
"Exhorto al Senado a que lleve a votación la Ley de Sueños y Promesas que aprobó la Cámara y que lo haga lo antes posible. Queremos seguir...aportando a las comunidades que amamos y contribuyendo al único país que consideramos nuestro hogar." — @JuanSaaa univision.com/noticias/opini…
"En realidad me da mucha felicidad que la Corte Suprema ha dado un fallo, que va dar mucha tranquilidad a muchas familias...Ahora hay que ponerle presión a la administración para ver que ellos implementen esta decisión correctamente." — @s_crvnts via @Telemundo #DACA #HomeIsHere
"I am calling on President Trump to do the right thing for the nation and not make another effort to repeal DACA. Instead, the President should direct DHS to reopen #DACA." — @SenatorDurbin #HomeIsHere #HR6
“Regardless of what this Administration [does] we will never give up fighting for justice — and we know that millions of advocates and allies across the country stand with us in this fight.” — @jaime_rangel91, GA Immigration Associate @FWDus saportareport.com/trump-on-dream…
.@jaime_rangel91: "We will continue to fight against mass incarceration, immigrant detention, and the pervasive policing that targets Black people...The Court’s decision strengthens our resolve as we fight against these injustices together." #DACA #HomeIsHere #HR6
“The #SCOTUS ruling was only possible because of the courage and resiliency of hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients who bravely stood up and refused to be ignored. It is a decision we will fight to protect." — @FWDus President @TheToddSchulte #HR6
Our work is far from over. The Senate MUST provide permanent protections and a pathway to citizenship for #Dreamers and #TPS holders. Will you join us and continue fighting for them? Message your Senators to pass #HR6 NOW. #HomeIsHere fwd.us/action/supreme… Image

Dreamers, #TPS holders, and farmworkers have never stopped fighting for their futures — and that’s why TODAY, the House will vote on #HR6 and the #FarmWorkforceModernizationAct. Across the country, there is strong bipartisan support for a path to citizenship. #WeAreHome
New national polling from @CenterForwardUS released TODAY finds voters are eager for congressional action and there is broad bipartisan support for protection from deportation and a path to citizenship for Dreamers, #TPS holders and undocumented farmworkers w/ over 80% support.

.@FWDus New York State Director of Criminal Justice Reform @rodnationn issued the following statement today after Governor Cuomo delivered his 2021 State of the State address: fwd.us/news/fwd-us-ur…
"Since December 1, more #COVID19 cases have swept through New York prisons than in the whole first nine months of the pandemic combined – and tragically, 10 more incarcerated people have died." — @rodnationn
"Public health experts and advocates have long predicted that the state’s failure to reduce our incarcerated population would cost lives and hurt families. Nearly ten months into the #COVID19 crisis, far too little has been done to keep incarcerated people safe." — @rodnationn

Despite facing their own uncertain futures, more than 5 million undocumented essential workers are combatting the pandemic & protecting all of our lives.

A path to citizenship is critical to America’s recovery and must be included in #COVID19 recovery efforts. #WeAreHome
Meet Esmeralda, an essential worker raising a three-year-old daughter. "The pathway to citizenship for me & others like me is the same pathway that will lead us all through America's recovery."

We must restore opportunity and dignity for all people living in the U.S. #WeAreHome
Jesus, a #DACA recipient & Houston paramedic, spent 6 days rescuing people from Hurricane Harvey and now, he is on the frontlines of the #COVID19 pandemic.

FWD.us is releasing a new report, "Dismantling #DACA & Terminating #TPS: A Moral and Economic Disaster That Hurts All Americans" which highlights the devastating human economic & political consequences of Pres Trump's anti-immigrant agenda bit.ly/3j93DB7 Image
The new report is the first in a four-part series, which will detail voters’ overwhelming rejection of these policies.

Broad public support for DACA recipients and TPS holders has been galvanized by the courageous advocacy of the people most severely impacted by these policies.
Numerous national polls have made clear that Americans of all backgrounds - including President Trump’s own supporters - are strongly supportive of immigrants and immigration, and even more so now than when he took office.
