Tell Congress to pass H.R. 6 for Immigrants

From the Justice for Immigrants Campaign

Tomorrow, June 4, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019. If passed into law, H.R. 6 would provide a pathway to citizenship for qualifying Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders living in the United States.

Take Action: Ask your U.S. Representative to VOTE FOR H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act
 
What is H.R. 6?

H.R. 6 would provide critical permanent legal protection to Dreamers, TPS and DED holders who are living in a state of uncertainty and fear. The USCCB's Committee on Migration Chairman, Bishop Joe S. Vásquez of Austin, Texas, has voiced support for the bill numerous times: issuing a March 15, 2019 statement endorsing H.R. 6, sending a letter to each Member of the U.S. House of Representatives in support of the bill, and endorsing individual component bills of H.R. 6 prior to markup in the House Judiciary Committee on May 22nd.
