- Representative Joe Neguse of CD2 (303) 335-1045 (Boulder) 202-225-2161 (DC Office) (you may try calling, but emails not accepted out of district)
WHEN IS MEMBER TO CALL OR WRITE: ASAP (This has come out of the House Judiciary Committee)
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT:
This will create paths to citizenship for people brought to the U.S. as children (DACA) and people with both TPS (temporary protected status), DED (deferred enforced departure).
For 2 years, this administration has attacked immigrants, ignoring the values we fight for every day and sending millions of families into legal limbo and uncertainty. The American people are on our side and so are the courts. Although court injunctions have made it possible for many DACA and TPS holders to renew their temporary status, the court decisions are limited and do not cover the entire population of individuals who need protection. Immigrant communities desperately need and deserve permanent protections. This stands to impact 3.5 million people.
We want the spirit of the bill maintained. Keep families together.
