Starting today, for the first time in years, the US Senate will debate an immigration bill. This will be a freewheeling, open-ended battle over one of the thorniest subjects, with the expected outcome completely unclear.
Here are 3 things you can do right now:
PRAY. Pray that God leads all conversations and helps the US Senate agree on a bipartisan legislative bill that respects the rule of law, protects the border, and protects the 1.8 million DACA Recipients and Dreamers.
CALL. In the midst of the need and desperation of Immigrant Dreamers with DACA, please call your member of Congress urging them to protect Immigrant Dreamers by supporting a bipartisan solution on DACA that respects the rule of law and border security, but also supports Immigrant Dreamers staying in the U.S. and being allowed to earn legalized status and/or citizenship.

DOWNLOAD STANCE APP. Simply download the Stance app on your smartphone and send voice messages to your congressman and Senators urging them to protect Dreamers by passing a bipartisan legislation. This only takes 2-3 minutes to complete. Download app here: http://takeastance.us/.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: After downloading the Stance app and selecting it to open, you will come to the first screen, read, and select continue.
Step 2: You will then come to the screen that says “Find your Representatives” and you either can click on “Use my location” or “Enter address manually.”
Step 3: You will then come to a screen that allows you to pick one of your two US Senators or your Representative. Select the one you want to send a voice message to.
Step 4: You will then come to a screen that says “Tell your Rep/Sen where you stand and encourage them to act. Make it personal!” Then you simply hold down the pink colored shape and record sharing the message provided that says, “I’m calling today about ISSUE. This is important to me because REASON/STORY. And I encourage you to act.” After recording your message it’s sent to the Senators and Representative’s voicemail for he or she to hear.
