On behalf of America’s Voice, United We Dream Action and Center for Community Change Action/Fair Immigration Reform Movement, we’re inviting all presidential candidates to join a DAPA family for dinner onor around the one-year anniversary of the DAPA announcement, November 20, 2015.
On November 20, 2014 President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) policy and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals(DACA).
DAPA would protect parents of US Citizen children fromdeportationandallowthem to apply for a work permit. DACA applies to people who came to this country as children. Currently, both DAPA and the expansion of DACA are blocked by a federal court.
Regardless of your position on DAPA and DACA, we invite you to break bread with these families and see for yourself how they are just like other American families. We want you to learn about their lives, and discuss what your Presidency would mean for them.
Your campaign can choose the state and we can find a DAPA family for you to join for dinner. If you prefer to identify your own family, we can work with your campaign to organize the event.
According to Latino Decisions, 63% of Latino voters say they personally know someone who is an undocumented immigrant, and immigration reform is already a critical issue for the 2016 elections. Voters want to know what each candidate proposes to do with the 11 million undocumented immigrants that currently reside in the United States—many of whom have US citizen family member sanddeeptiestotheircommunities.
